This cocktail sounds bizarre, but the flavors blend perfectly. Coffee shop baristas have been playing with cold brew coffee and lemonade this year and we decided to take our own spin-off.
1.25 oz Vitae Spirits Coffee Liqueur
0.25 oz Amaro CioCiaro
1.5 oz Vanilla Bean Lemonade*
Garnish with candied lemon peel (can buy or make)
Vanilla Bean Lemonade
Combine 2 cups water, one cup sugar in a pot, and heat to a boil. Cut a vanilla bean, scrape out the innards and add it to the boil for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and let the vanilla simple syrup cool to room temp. Add 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice to the mix and stir.
