Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Black Jack is a symphony of deep, comforting flavors that brilliantly marries the robustness of coffee with the warmth of brandy, topped off with a sweet kiss of cherry brandy. The teaspoon of sugar cleverly cuts through the bitterness, binding these bold ingredients into a velvety smooth cocktail that's perfect for unwinding after a long day.
