This cocktail will make a sensation when served alongside prune and bacon morsels, smoked sausage and bacon morsels or with blue cheese and nuts.
This cocktail was inspired by the aromatic profile of El Dorado’s 5 years old Premium Demerara Dark Rum and created in collaboration with top mixologist Simon Faucher (Les Rouquineries). If you are looking for a powerful experience, this is the cocktail for you! The congregation of the bourbon’s spicy/smoky/oaky notes, the Kahlùa’s sophisticated dulcitude, the complex woody sweetness of the maple syrup and the striking roasted flavour of the Fernet Branca, a bitter aperitif all share some of the same dominant molecule that, once mixed together with this excellent dark rum, create a powerful aromatic synergy in this cocktail that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Go ahead, go crazy! Turn this cocktail into a long drink by adding dark beer, such as a stout, to it, or even better, a smoked porter! The result will blow you away!
