I call this drink No. 2. It’s a companion to No. 1, which I shared with my Patreon supporters. Like everyone’s new favorite drink, my Little Baby Spritz, this is also a fairly low-alcohol cocktail. You can sip it all evening (or day, whatever) and not get too annoying. You also won’t get too sleepy because it has caffeine! In fact, it’s pretty much the Little Baby Spritz plus cold brew coffee concentrate. I used Chameleon, but any cold brew concentrate will work.
The other ingredient? Aperol. Of course! The combination of coffee and Aperol actually reminds me a lot of my favorite (and local!) amaro, J. Rieger & Co. Caffe Amaro — which I love to drink on the rocks or with club soda, so it’s no surprise I love this drink, too.
2 ounces cold brew concentrate
2.5 ounces Aperol
Lemon twist, for garnish
Add the cold brew concentrate and Aperol to a collins glass and stir. Add a handful of ice, top off with club soda, garnish with a lemon twist, and enjoy!
