M.J.'s McNuts

It has been long overdue to give a few nods to the boys and girls that make up the regulars at the Firewater Lounge.

 All of them have been highly influential in all the creative aspects of the drink from building the pour to naming cocktails. One of the best drinks born and named by a rager of the Lounge is the immortal M.J. McNuts. A potent riff of the Black Russian, the McNuts kicks your butt on the sly, but if you know the namesake of the drink, you would understand how the drink operates. It’s strong, but sweet; it could take advantage of you, but it doesn’t. It’s too smooth not to drink, but too powerful for you to have more than one. You can’t puke one up without feeling bad about it. It’s great, but mainly just coffee. It’s just plain. Just plain awesome.

Holly's Original

2 ½ ounces coffee liquor (we like Kamora)
2 ½ ounces macadamia liquor
1 ounce Drambuie

Build all ingredients in an old fashioned glass over ice. Stir. Drink. Chill.
