The Sputnik

“Fine then,” said Paola. “Tell me what you think I should get.”

I studied the menu. There would be no Sputnik, a drink that featured grain alcohol, a.k.a. moonshine, for me.

  • 2 ounces concentrated cold-brewed coffee
  • 4 ounces water
  • ¾ ounce Everclear Grain Alcohol
  • ¾ ounce Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur
  • ½ ounce DeKuyper Peppermint Schnapps
  • ¾ ounce half and half

Combine all ingredients over ice in a footed ice tea glass. Stir to combine.
