The Exuberant Gaucho

Exuberant Gaucho

Recipe courtesy Nick Digiovanni, Publico, St. Louis

Cold brew coffee matches up well with the bracing bitterness of amaros, like Campari. This complex sipper mingles bitter, sweet and spicy notes all in one glass.

  • 1 ounce Gran Centenario Añejo tequila
  • 1 ounce Blueprint Cold Brew Coffee
  • ½ ounce Campari
  • ½ ounce Giffard White Creme de Cacao
  • ½ ounce Ancho Reyes liqueur
  • Lemon peel, for garnish

In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients (except lemon peel) with ice. Stir well and strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Twist lemon peel over the drink to express the oil, and garnish drink with the peel.
