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.
