Rum, Branca Menta & Coffee Cocktail Recipe

Rum, herbal liqueur and cold brew bring the great outdoors to your glass

Matt Merkin at George Washington Bar in the Freehand Hotel crafted this deeply layered cocktail "as a nod to the fresh air and feel of the deep woods." He notes how "the pine and mint play well with Turkish black urfa chili and cold brew to create something that seems fit be sipped while telling stories around a campfire."
