From the spiritual home of the third-wave U.S. coffee movement, this drink channels the classic White Russian and is particularly popular as an eye-opener with the brunch crowd.
- 1 ½ ounces vodka
- ½ ounce Kahlua coffee liqueur
- 3 ½ ounces Caffe Vita Theo Blend Cold Brew Coffee
- ½ ounce Baileys Irish Cream
In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, Kahlua and coffee with ice. Shake well and strain into a Collins glass, over fresh ice. Hold a spoon directly over the drink, rounded side up, and gently pour the Bailey’s over the back of the spoon to create a float on top of the drink. Serve with a straw.
