I love coffee, and most of the time, I drink it black. When I first heard of Mr. Black I was intrigued and sought it out, having to go to the next state over to find it! I was not disappointed. I set out to create something to have a depth of flavor that complimented the delicious coffee notes and brought even more dance to the finish. Yellow Chartreuse is such a sweet and delightfully complex flavor and the combination of the Benedictine's herbs and citrus brought about a beautiful ending.



 50 ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 30 ml Yellow Chartreuse
 30 ml D.O.M. Benedictine
 3 dashes Orange Bitters
 3 drops Chocolate Bitters
 2 tbsp Soft whipped vanilla cream
 2 dashes Dried Valencia Orange Peel



Mix 500ml of heavy cream with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 table spoon of powdered sugar to make the "Soft Whipped Vanilla Cream" It's really whipped cream in it's adolescent stage. Can be prepped ahead of time and lasts for a bit in the fridge.


Add Mr. Black, Yellow Chartreuse, Benedictine, orange bitters, and chocolate Bitters to shaker.


Fill with ice and hard shake for 20 seconds. (This aerates the liquids to make them almost resemble a nitro style coffee)


Pour though a Hawthorne strainer into a serving glass. (I used a Martini style, but it would look great in a coupe as well).


Top with the soft whipped vanilla cream and sprinkle (not one of the options for quantity) with the Valencia orange sprinkles.
