Our friends at Rosso Coffee Roasters are in London, England right now (my old home town!) for the Coffee Masters Competition. The one and only Cole Torode, one of the owners of Rosso is competing with this coffee cocktail.
Coffee cocktails are becoming more and more popular as the quality of coffee available increases. No longer being limited to just Irish Coffee, baristas are now using interesting varietals of coffee as a perfect pairing with unique ingredients to create an endless repertoire of cocktail recipes.
In this video, Cole shows us how he makes his signature cocktail, and below you'll find the recipe. Let us know if you try it out!
