Coffee of Champions
We have two current obsessions: cold-brewed coffee and the Olympics. And the two go hand in hand, as late night event-watching often necessitates extra caffeine.
But to make viewing sessions more, ahem, spirited, we’re eschewing iced joe for boozy cold-brew coffee, like this cocktail brought to us by Jasper’s Corner Tap & Kitchen in San Francisco. The lightly frothy, chilled Kona Shake, inspired by barman Kevin Diedrich’s time on the Big Island, is boozy up front, followed by a flavorful hit of java. Like the best athletes, the drink finishes strong.
