I've always been a big fan of Tiramisu, so when I heard that the coffee cocktail competition was running again, I set out to create a drink that's as close to the flavour of a proper Tiramisu as possible. The result tastes just like the real thing, with a creamy texture too! Who says you can't have a cocktail for dessert?



 60 ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 30 ml Stout Syrup
 15 ml Fresh Cream
 3 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters
 1 Whole Egg
 1 pinch Grated Dark Chocolate to garnish



Put a little bit of cream on a plate and dip the rim of a coupe glass in it. Then dip the glass in cocoa powder to cover the rim with cocoa powder.


Add all of the ingredients (except the grated chocolate) to a cocktail shaker


Dry shake, then add ice and shake again


Double strain into the cocoa powder rimmed coupe glass and top with some finely grated dark chocolate.

Stout Syrup

Put 500ml of any imperial stout (chocolatey ones work best!) in a pan and bring to the boil - be careful of the foam!


Reduce the stout by 50% then turn down the heat, then add 250g of demerara sugar


Stir well to dissolve the sugar. Leave to cool, then carefully pour into a sterilized bottle and keep in the fridge until you need it.
