Dark Moon Recipe

One sip of this cocktail and you might decide the dark side is actually quite delicious. Combining brewed coffee, spiced rum, coffee liqueur, cola and cream, this tasty Dark Moon recipe is a smooth libation with just the right balance of spicy sweetness. The next time you have some coffee left in the pot (does that ever actually happen?), store it in the fridge and use it to make a batch of these. Look for Mexican cola with real sugar to plus up this drink. Also, add the cream last and avoid stirring for a beautiful cascading presentation. Cheers!
