Cocktail Hour: Nocturnal

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 19, 2016

Nocturnal SAM_2592Today’s libation is mixed drink that pairs a robust rum (Noxx and Dun 2-4-5) with a sweet coffee liqueur (Kahlua). I stumbled upon this flavour combination when I was checking out the cocktail selections on the Bacardi Rum website. Their version of the cocktail (called Noctuno) is a little different from my final version as I changed the ratio of rum to coffee liqueur from 2:1 to 3:1 which gives the rum in the serving more expression. I also added a touch of lemon juice to provide a very small counterbalance of tart flavour to play against the sweetness of the Kahlua.

The Nocturnal (as I call my version of the mixed drink) is excellent as an after dinner drink to enjoy while entertaining friends and family.


2 oz  Noxx & Dunn 2-4-5 Rum
3/4 oz  Kahlua (sub quality Coffee Liqueur)
dash  Fresh Lemon Juice
Orange Peel

Add ice in a small rocks glass
Pour the aged rum and the coffee liqueur over the ice
Add a dash of lemon juice
Garnish with a thin slice of Orange Peel.
