I wanted to create a drink that combined Mr. Black & rum. Seeing as coffee is often drank with milk, I drew inspiration from the Jamaican Milk Punch. However I wanted to put a bit of a fancier twist on it and make it in a way where it could be served similar to an espresso martini and built in a way where Mr. Black was still the star of the show. I found using yogurt instead of heavy cream still provided a creamy texture without over diluting the flavor profiles of the rum & Mr. Black. Enjoy!



 1 oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.50 oz Rum(Appleton Estate Signature Jamaican Rum)
 1 oz Whole Milk
 5 ml Simple Syrup
 3 dashes Vanilla extract
 7.50 ml Plain Unflavored Greek Yogurt(1-1/2 barspoons)
 1 dash Angostura Bitters
 Coffee Beans



Put an old fashioned or coupe glass in freezer to chill


Combine Mr. Black, rum, milk, yogurt, vanilla, simple syrup, and angostura bitters in cocktail shaker and shake with ice


Strain into chilled glass over large ice cube (if using an old fashioned glass) or without ice if serving up in a coupe


Garnish by lightly sprinkling cinnamon over the drink and by placing 3 coffee beans in the center and it’s ready to go!

    I would’ve used 2 dashes of bitters but other than that this will be perfect to drink as I read the morning paper

      Bob, I agree that this is the perfect cocktail and as well as you, I will enjoy alongside the morning paper. However, I would not touch the recipe in any respect; an additional dash of bitters will sidetrack the elusive taste of the garments.
