The Mangan Coffee drink is a little stronger than most coffee cocktails. It’s mostly hot coffee and liqueurs, but it does have an ounce of rum, too.
Specifically, it has two different kinds of rum: Bacardi Black and Myers Dark. Yes, you can feel free to make substitutions.
Even though those are great rums, any dark or black rum could work in this drink. Feel free to experiment or just use what you have on hand.
This drink tastes a good bit like coffee with Irish cream, but the rums give it something extra.
Black rum is aged longer than other rums, and that gives it a smoky sweet flavor. And that’s what takes this drink to the next level of coffee cocktails.
Like most coffee drinks, it’s sweet and easy on the taste buds. Kahlua and Baileys make sure of that, adding all the sweetness you need.
This is a great drink for cool evenings or anytime you just want to take it easy and have a comfort drink. It has six ounces of coffee, so be aware if you have trouble drinking coffee in the evenings and then getting to sleep.
Decaf is great in cocktails when you want the coffee flavor but not the caffeine. There are plenty of tasty decafs available in stores.
This also makes a great brunch drink. A little on the strong side, but the coffee goodness is there.
