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

Makes: 1 drink


  • 1 1/2 ounces Fernet Branca
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
