artifactrix: Tony Stark in Iron Man armor (no helmet), disheveled and slightly bloody.  Captioned "A dubious role model at best." (role model)
Yesterday night, in the midst of some fairly bibulous good times with friends, I decided that what I really wanted was Irish coffee. Unfortunately, I lacked both Irish whiskey and cream. I did, however, have Pusser's Rum (medium-dark, kind of woody in a whiskeyish way) and sweetened condensed milk. What I ended up drinking was strong coffee with a shot of rum and sweetened condensed milk stirred in to taste, and it was glorious. Definitely something I'll be repeating, and as such, I need something to call it.

As far as I can tell, the closest preexisting beverage is the Pharisäer, which, like Irish coffee, is meant to have a discrete layer of cream on top, rather than mixed in.  Most other coffee-and-rum drinks contain additional liqueurs, spices, or citrus. 

Opinion questions: a) does coffee + Navy rum + sweetened condensed milk constitute a new and different tipple? and b) if so, what shall I call it?
