Black Bart

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

Root is a relatively new liqueur from a Philadelphia company called Art in the Age. Distilled from sugarcane, it’s flavored with birch bark, smoked black tea, citrus peels, cloves and other spices. Francis Schott combines it with a cinnamon-infused simple syrup to create a replacement for coffee liqueur in the original White Russian. The result tastes like a spiked root beer float.

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces Root liqueur
  3. 3/4 ounce white rum, preferably Banks 5-Island
  4. 1 ounce chilled heavy cream
  5. 1/2 ounce Cinnamon Syrup (see Note)
  6. 1 cinnamon stick, for garnish
  7. A pinch of ground cinnamon, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnishes and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled rocks glass and garnish with the cinnamon stick and ground cinnamon.
Notes Cinnamon Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup Demerara or other raw sugar with 2 ounces water and 1/2 smashed cinnamon stick. Simmer over moderate heat for 10 minutes. Let cool, then strain the syrup into a jar and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 4 ounces.
