Black Maria

Black Maria is a Caribbean Black Russian made with rum, coffee liqueur and real coffee. As such it feels a little more special than the garden variety Black Russian.

Cruzan white rum is labeled "aged rum" only as if to point out that their rum has a respectable aged flavor. Use it instead of Bacardi Superior if you want to be able to distinguish between the coffee drink with vodka and the one made with rum.
  • 2 oz. white rum (Cruzan used)
  • 2 oz. coffee liqueur (homemade used)
  • 4 oz. cold black coffee
  • 1 tsp. sugar
Combine all ingredients in a brandy snifter. Add cracked ice.
