On a hot summer day, what’s more refreshing than a minty mojito? That last thing to cross your mind is a coffee, but after a satisfying backyard BBQ feast of grilled ribs, wings, and steak, reaching for that hot espresso might not be the best thirst quencher for the job.
That’s why we decided to create a unique twist (no pun intended) on the classic cocktail by adding a sweet caffeinated kick of cold brew. Cool off with a tasty beverage that will chill you out and pick you up at the same time.
