Whiskey For Your Brew: ‘Coffee Old-Fashioned’ Inspired by Classic New Orleans Cocktail
Fans of coffee and old fashioneds now have the perfect drink ready-made for them, thanks to The Cooper Spirits co. and Intelligentsia Coffee, which partnered up to release the Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned, which is exactly what it sounds like — a version of the classic Old-Fashioned that includes coffee. It is the first expansion of The Cooper’s Hochstadter’s Slow & Low brand.
The Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned is made with rye whiskey aged two years; Intelligentsia Cold Coffee made from a blend of coffees from Ethiopia, Guatemala and Peru; raw honey; demerara cane sugar; aromatic bitters; and orange peel.
The drink is inspired by Café Brûlot, a classic coffee drink from New Orleans that mixes French roast coffee with cognac, brandy, cloves, cinnamon, sugar and lemon and/or orange zest.
The Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned retails for about $26.99 for a 750-milliliter bottle and is bottled at 40% ABV.
