Thinking of Drinking: Espresso Notini

Looking for a cocktail to make for the nondrinkers?  This could even be great as a dessert.  I'm also going to use it to make Tiramisu.

Crafted to capture the essence of a rich and vinous coffee liqueur, Lyre’s Coffee Originale (SRP: $36) offers a full-flavored palate of espresso, spice, caramel, toasted nuts, and a rich vanilla finish that plays nicely with an equal serving of cold brew concentrate – eliminating the need to brew a fresh pot before preparing cocktails. Lyre’s White Cane Spirit offers the kick of a white rum or vodka, though a one-to-one substitute of either full-alcohol spirit is encouraged for anyone who wishes to keep their digestif boozy.

1.5 oz Lyre’s Coffee Originale
.5 oz Lyre’s White Cane Spirit*
1.5 oz Cold Brew Concentrate
.5 oz Simple Syrup


Dry shake, half fill shaker with ice. Shake hard briefly, fine strain. Serve in cocktail coupette and garnish with a coffee bean float.

Note: For a low ABV option, replace White Cane Spirit with a vodka or rum of your choice
