Traditionally this cocktail does not include blue curaçao with its name referencing Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and not the colour. Mysteriously, our photo of this cocktail has a distinct blue hue so this led me to adapt the recipe to fit both the image and its name. My original recipe:
1½ shots Bacardi Carta Ocho aged rum
½ shot Ketel One Vodka
½ shot Coffee liqueur
1½ shots Freshly squeezed orange juice
