A decadent, yet not too sweet combination of coffee liqueur and cold brew coffee with cream, caramel and depth from Fernet. It’s the bomb!
0.5oz Half N Half
0.5oz Caramel Simple syrup*
Bar spoon Fernet
Caramel Simple syrup
To start, stir together the 1 cup sugar and about 1/8 cup of water in a small pot over low heat. Add 0.5oz lemon juice and allow mixture to desolve. (lemon helps keep sugar from crystallizing.)
Once the mixture is dissolved, crank up the heat to medium-high and cook the syrup (covered) for about 2 minutes to jump start the caramel process. Then uncover it and stir it constantly until the syrup is a light amber color.
Once it’s the color you want, carefully remove it from the heat and stir in the other 1/2 cup of water. Do this very slowly as it will hiss and might splatter, which can burn you.
