Taildragger Coffee Rum

Taildragger Coffee Rum
     Tailwinds Distilling Company has introduced their new coffee rum.   Taildragger Coffee Rum is truly a great flavored rum.  It offers the dark brown color of a fine cup of coffee and the aroma to match.  The taste reminds me of a cup of "CafĂ© Cubano".  It has that Cuban coffee strength and aroma that takes me to the mornings in Havana.  

     It is mellow on the palate, and finishes with a rich dark coffee flavor that seems to linger for a long time.   I'm liking this one very much and have all ready put it to work this morning.   It immediately made me think of my friend Gayle Seale and how much she enjoys a coffee cocktail in the mornings.  

Rise and Shine Cocktail
  • 2 oz. Taildragger Coffee Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Amaretto
  • 1 oz. Rum Chata
Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into a Martini Glass and top with fresh ground nutmeg and a cinnamon stick.

Give this new coffee expression a try, I think you will enjoy the rich flavor that will really linger for quite a long while.  ;o)
