Author Notes

Cold brew combined with spirits makes a quintessential brunch cocktail -- a buzzy beverage that creates a bold and boozy twilight effect. This recipe is adapted from a cocktail by Ansel Vickery of Free House – I've changed it slightly by adding an extra ounce of cold brew and a lemon twist. —Katie Bernstein

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 ounces Fernet Branca
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 5 ounces cold brew
  • Lemon twist, for garnish
  1. Stir together the Fernet, simple syrup, and cold brew with ice. Strain into a glass, over ice. Serve with a lemon twist.
