I'm looking to make a dark coffee flavoured cocktail/drink, and I want to float a thin foamy head on top, to make it look like a miniture Guinness. Any recommendations on how to make the foamy head?

cream or actual Guiness, we used to make a "pub drink" called a "Black Beard" in which you had a shot of spiced rum, a shot of Tia Maria and then a wee splash from the nozzle of Guiness. Bloody far from being a cocktail but it had a nice creamy head.

There's THIS: http://tinyurl.com/28yv3uq

Otherwise, you can add a bit of raw egg white (pasteurized, natch) to the shaker.

Hi thanks for all your input. I did try a couple of differnet ideas including the egg white, but a damm good hard shake seemed to create a good head on the drink and due to the sugar content it stayed there. Here is the recipe I made last night in case you fancy a try:

1 oz Santa Teresa Araku Ron y coffee liqueur
3/4 oz Gold rum
3/4 oz Espresso coffee

Shake well with ice, strain into cocktail glass and enjoy!

I know that you had already concocted a drink and wanted to know had to add a froth, but as a side note I have found that the Castaway (rum/pineapple/coffee liqueur) in the Grog Log has always produced a very frothy head. It's so frothy in fact, that if you're being lazy and just using a coctail shaker, not strainer, to pour, it barely pours through the holes. I've noticed that a good amount of drinks with ANY pinepple juice in them will froth up with only a moderate shake, leading me to believe that there's just something in the juice that likes to "air" out. Very interesting stuff.

But as you found out, if you shake just about anything hard enough, it'll froth up.

Wow, that last part sounded kind of nasty. Try not to visualize it...
