I love the cultural contrast between coffee and cocktails and the synthesis that emerges when they are combined. Coffee is generally considered a morning or daytime drink, and cocktails are generally an evening or night drink. It reminds me of a song by Panic! At the Disco, "When the Day Met the Night." So in that respect, I wanted to create a drink that could reasonably been seen anywhere at anytime.



 2 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 Shot of espresso
 2 dashes Grapefruit bitters
 ½ oz Lemon infused simple syrup
 4 oz Fever tree aromatic tonic water



Build this drink in a large ornate glass over 12oz in volume


Add bitters and syrup first then fill the glass with ice


Add in tonic water gently so as not to lose bubbles


Top with Mr. Black and espresso


Enjoy the layers then stir together gently with your straw.


Drink up!
