How to Drink Mr. Black with Alix Nardella

Alex Nardella

The fact they are both from Australia has nothing to do with how Alix Nardella felt for Mr. Black. Her first love may have been whisky, but now she only has eyes for this smooth and sexy coffee liqueur.

Born in 2012, Mr. Black is the love child of Tom Baker and Philip Moore. After tinkering for nine months, they came upon the perfect combination of coffee beans to produce their sublime elixir, immediately winning a gold medal from London International Wine and Spirits that year.

Alix has been winning awards as well, coming second in The Glenfiddich Malt Mastermind competition before joining Mr. Black. After traveling the world, lucky for us, she settled in London and is set on teaching us all that there is more to a coffee drink than the White Russian and the Espresso Martini. (no matter how good they both are!)

She even converted me to the wonders of the Negroni, which I am not a big fan of, after making me one of her creations, simply called the Coffee Negroni, which she made for me at Every Cloud in Hackney.

FYI: Don’t be confused! This video is branded with my old logo, Best Sips Worldwide. Just ignore it and watch the amazing cocktail making 😉
