Imbibing Mr. Boston: Black Maria Cocktail

IMG_3810-800First of all, let me point out that the amount of ingredients as published in the Mr. Boston Guide is incorrect.  The proportions are doubled.  Cut everything in half and you will make one cocktail.

The flavor is pretty decent, and I suppose if you need an eye-opener the morning after a wild night, this might just be what the doctor ordered.  I particularly like the way rum works with coffee.

The key here is to make sure that everything stays hot, so definitely pre-warm the glass, and you can even re-heat everything in a microwave once it’s in the glass if need be.

Black Maria
2oz light rum
2oz coffee-flavored brandy
0.5oz simple syrup
4oz hot strong brewed coffee

Stir in pre-warmed Irish coffee glass.
