You know the Negroni, but let us introduce you to its even fancier, French cousin: The Cognac and Coffee Negroni. Brought to us by NYC-based Cocktail Enthusiast and Amateur Home Bartender Alex Miller, this twist on a stiff classic incorporates 18-hour cold brew for a deeper, richer flavor.
"I have a bunch of oversized rocks glasses that can hold a massive capacity of drink, so if I were to fill it entirely with booze it would be one and done," Alex tells us. "Since a double old fashioned glass can hold 11 oz why not make up a little bit of the difference with some really exceptional coffee?"
- 3 oz coarse ground coffee
- 32 oz water
- 1 oz cognac
- 1 oz red vermouth
- 1 oz Campari (we used Campari Cask Tales for a nice oakiness)
- 1 orange, sliced
- Fill a Trade Cold Brew Bag with coffee
- Let sit in water for up to 18 hours
- Pour 2 oz cold brew in a large rocks glass
- Combine with remaining ingredients
- Mix ingredients until cohesive
- Add fresh orange slice to garnish
