A sumptuous mix of rum, coffee liqueur, and espresso. It's rich, indulgent and creamy, and the shot of espresso will make sure you keep up with the pack if you find yourself flagging at the office party!

Give the classic a little twist with some dark rum. It goes perfectly with zesty orange and some dark chocolate to make a deeply flavoured short cocktail.
