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.
