Ingredients

  • 150ml strong black coffee
  • 25ml coffee liqueur
  • 25ml dark rum
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
  • ice
  • 25ml double cream
  • 1 coffee bean

Method

  • STEP 1

    Pour the coffee into a heatproof glass or mug. Stir in the liqueur, rum and sugar and mix until the sugar has dissolved.

  • STEP 2

    Put a handful of ice in a cocktail shaker and add the cream. Shake a few times, just until the outside of the shaker feels a little frosty, then slowly strain the cream on top of the liqueur coffee – use a bar spoon or pour over the back of a teaspoon to help you slow down the pour and ensure the cream floats.

  • STEP 3

    Garnish with a coffee bean and serve.
