Is there anything better than cold brew coffee on a hot summer day? Lately on warm evenings, we have been reaching for a cold brew liqueur. Mr. Black, a Coffee Liqueur, has reinvigorated us and our love for playing with cocktails.

Complete with beautiful branding, the Australian Mr. Black coffee liqueur is ultra-hip. Each bottle has 1100 mg of caffeine per liter, so it comes with a true kick of caffeine. And it tastes like good coffee, not like those coffee liqueurs in our Grandma’s booze cabinets that have hints of bitter Folgers. Instead, it’s a beautiful blend of vodka and three different Arabica coffee beans. Each of the three beans are roasted individually so each of their unique flavors and notes can develop and shine. It truly is a beautiful, smooth and refreshing coffee liqueur. The aromas and flavors of coffee come at the start of each sip and the heat of the vodka finishes it.
The spirit has encouraged us to get back to experimenting with cocktails, although to be honest, we love Mr. Black straight up over ice or simply with a splash of sparkling water. Grab a bottle! It will make you revisit all those traditional coffee cocktails that never quite did it for you.
Check out below the recipe for a Cold Fashioned, like an Old Fashioned, but with coffee. Cheers!
