River Styx

bourbon, coffee liqueur, creme de cacao
River Styx presented by Cocktail Detour


The combination of coffee and chocolate paired with whisky is what make this recipe stand out. It’s a wonderful after dinner drink, even having the potential of replacing a desert.

Allspice dram, or pimento liqueur is extra fitting this close to Christmas. It tastes a bit of ginger bread, and it’s very strong in flavour. Hence just adding a dash like in this recipe still impacts the cocktail quite a lot.
