Drink of the Week: Black Gold

Gloria Mak, Howl Staff

Coffee cocktails have always been a favourite of mine after dinner occasions because they round off a good meal. Being a student, a combination of liquids stereotypically associated to my lifestyle couldn’t be better news, particularly since midterms are fast approaching.


  1. 4 oz coffee, hot
  2. 1/4 oz Triple Sec
  3. 1/4 oz Amaretto
  4. 1/4 oz Irish Cream
  5. 1/4 oz hazelnut liqueur
  6. Dash of cinnamon Schnapps

Black Gold is a warm drink that’ll accompany you on a cold night of studying. It’s smooth and, when made right, has a nice crema on top. The Amaretto and hazelnut liqueur provide it with a nutty highlight, while the cinnamon Schnapps provides a pleasant tickle down the throat.
