August is National Coffee Month; National Coffee Day is September 26th, and International Coffee Day is October 1st. While most coffee drinkers can be convinced to upgrade their cup—to a cappuccino, for example—how about a coffee cocktail?
It’s easy to add a shot of your favorite spirit or liqueur to hot or iced coffee—and to get a can of Reddi Wip to top it. But how about a Tia Tonic?
The mixologists at coffee liqueur brand Tia Maria Cold Brew partnered with premium brand Q Tonic to create this refreshing cold brew cocktail.
Tia Maria is made with 100% Arabica coffee beans and Madagascar vanilla, and Q Mixers Tonic Water is made with extra carbonation, quinine and organic agave. (It’s our favorite for drinking straight quinine water.)
1. FILL a highball glass with ice. Add the tonic water and the liqueur. Garnish and serve.
