The Embla, by Alex Boon & Katerina Makarov

United behind a mission to bring craft coffee into the night, Mr Black wants people to radically rethink the role of coffee in the modern bar. Urged on by ambassadors Martin Hudak & Jimmy Snelgrove, many of Australia’s best bars have taken up the challenge.


  • 10 ml Mr Black Coffee Amaro
  • 50 ml Beeswax rested vodka
  • 10 ml Brookie’s macadamia and wattleseed liqueur
  • 10 ml demerara syrup
  1. Stir down and strain into a glass.
  2. Float 20ml of aerated thickened cream, garnish with grated nutmeg.
