Bahama Cafe Especial

     I was sitting at the bar the other day when it was very empty, dog days of August, and thought about an idea for a new coffee cocktail.   It had to have a real coffee flavor, yet be more along the idea of a daiquiri style cocktail.  I know that lime in your coffee is not a really good idea, but I think you get the idea.

    I have to start with Brinley Gold Shipwreck Coffee Rum, and I want a dry rum like Brugal Extra Dry as well to level it out.   I toyed with some chocolate liqueur, but that would just loose the flavor of the coffee and get to far away from what I was trying to do.   I thought a little further, and remembered that many people like a bit of cream in their coffee and a little bit of sweetener.  So I put them with it and I was ready for a cocktail "wake me up".

Bahama Cafe Especial

  • 2 oz. Brinley Gold Shipwreck Coffee Rum
  • 1 oz. Brugal Extra Dry Rum
  • 3/4 oz. El Dorado Rum Cream
  • 1/2 oz. Agave Nectar
Place all ingredients except the El Dorado Rum Cream in a shaker filled with ice.  Shake until fully chilled.  Strain into a cocktail glass and float with El Dorado Rum Cream.  Top with fresh ground nutmeg and enjoy.
