The Brown Bomber is a vintage American cocktail.

It is one of only a few cocktails to feature peanut liqueur,[1] which is made by blending ground peanuts with a spirit, often rum.[2][3]

The origin of the drink is unclear. It may have been created in honor of Joe Louis, the African-American boxer and World Heavyweight Champion from 1937 to 1949, who was nicknamed "The Brown Bomber."[4][5]
