Ideal for those who can’t decide between coffee or a cocktail, this deliciously bittersweet Negroni variation substitutes cold-brew coffee for gin. Schaffner, bar manager for Butterjoint and the soon-to-open Pie for Breakfast, prefers to make cold brew with locally roasted beans from Commonplace Coffee. Bottled cold brew can be substituted.

Four Brunch Cocktails to Wake Up Your Weekend
Ingredients
  • 1 ounce cold-brew coffee
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Orange twist, for garnish
Directions

In mixing glass, combine all ingredients (except garnish) with ice. Stir to chill, then strain into rocks glass, over ice if you like. Garnish with orange twist. Serves 1.

To serve a group, this drink can be premixed (without ice) and stored in a tightly capped bottle. One cup of each ingredient should serve 8 people. When ready to serve, pour into individual glasses over ice, then garnish each glass.
