It's happy hour at the cottage. Leftover coffee doesn't usually exist at the cottage but it's Spring which meant my day was full of outdoor chores so the second cup of coffee in my French Press was left to be enjoyed in the evening. An extra bonus is that I could use a little pick-me-up after schlepping wood and digging in the garden all day. Sometimes the stars align.
Never let the morning's brew go to be waste...
4 1/2 oz black iced coffee
1 oz bourbon
1/4 to 1/2 oz maple syrup (how sweet do you like it?)
If you don't have leftover coffee brew a pot and let it chill until cold, or dilute your cold-brew concentrate with an equal amount of cold water. Measure all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake thoroughly, until chilled and foamy. Strain into a glass over ice.
If you made this please comment below on your thoughts - will you make it again? Have you amended it somehow? How sweet did you like it?
