From other users
  • Made with Antica. My Kahlua made this initially very syrupy, but the chocolatey bitterness swept in quickly. Really interesting drink. Lemon zest on rim is key. — ☆☆☆☆☆

Not a huge coffee cocktail

Not a huge coffee cocktail guy. I played with this a bit:

2 oz rye
3/4 oz Campari
3/8 oz Coffee liqueur (St George)
3/8 oz dry vermouth
3/8 oz Punt e Mes
1 d mole bitters

I liked this very much.

Good balance.  The homemade

Good balance.  The homemade coffee liqueur I'm using is quite flavorful, and it tends to overwhelm.  I'd use 1/2 ounce of it at most next time I make the drink.
