Coconut Milk Cold Brew. Your one-two punch pick me up, alcohol and caffeine.
We ask ourselves, what would we actually want to have in the waning hours of the morning?
The world of brunch cocktails is laden with riffs on the Bloody Mary and the Mimosa. From buckets of orange juice spiked with bubbly wine of vague provenance, to drinkable salad, this ground has been traveled by many before us.
Drinks with dairy are enjoyable but heavy. Simply putting booze directly into coffee is less than inspiring. Enter Coconut Milk…
We use coconut milk as a delivery vehicle for morning alcohol. Pueblo Viejo Añejo from Casa San Matias in Tepatitlán, Jalisco forms the backbone for the drink. The tequila is accented with Mr. Black’s Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur from Australia. After being shaken with Coconut Milk, it’s finished with shaved Tonka Bean. The bean of a tree in the pea family that is indigenous to Central America and the northern regions of South America. Its flavor is an amazing combination of vanilla, cherry, and bitter almond.
