What’s “nitro coffee”? Basically, it’s coffee that’s kegged or canned along with nitrogen, which provides a unique texture and creamy mouthfeel. Bartenders are loving it for cocktails like this one, which is sweetened and strengthened with a dose of orange liqueur.

  • 1 ½ ounces Grand Marnier
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • 3 ounces nitro cold brew coffee
  • Float of Domaine Saint Vincent NV Brut (or dry sparkling wine)

In a mixing glass, combine the Grand Marnier and simple syrup. Add ice, stir, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Add nitro cold brew coffee. Finish with a float of sparkling wine.
