National Coffee Day Is Rolling in Fast: 9/29/18. Check Out These Cool Cocktails!

While I have featured National Coffee Day a couple of times before ( Article 1 here. Article 2 here .) and I really liked the recipes I featured.  Now I have a final batch of cocktails for this special day, brought to you by Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur, a new entry in the spirits  and liqueur category.



What is Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur?




Mr Black was created five years ago in Australia over a chance encounter between Philip Moore, one of Australia’s foremost distillers, and Tom Baker, coffee-nerd and designer. Together, they founded Mr Black Roasters & Distillers in August 2013 with a simple mission: take Australia’s coffee culture into the night.




At the core and essence of Mr Black lies a coffee roastery and a craft distillery. Each single origin coffee is roasted separately by Mr Black’s Head Roaster, Dr. Detlef Mohr, to create the signature smooth Mr Black flavor profile.



Made 300 bottles at a time by hand, Mr Black embraces the “low and slow” cold brew process. With half the sugar and ten times the coffee of ‘old-world’ liqueurs, Mr Black is a cold brew liquor for coffee purists.



Here are recipes provided to me. Please note that often the ingredients are provided with measurements and that is because that’s how I received the recipes. Also, the method or actual steps to making each cocktail weren’t provided either so I created a general “rule of thumb” way to create each cocktail.  While it might not be the perfect way of creating that specific cocktail, the social user for each venue has been provided so that you could ask each respective venue how to mix the cocktail properly!
