Ingredients:
45ml Cointreau
60ml cold-brewed coffee
30ml coconut milk

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled Old-Fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

Cointreau takes the taste of summer from all over the world, captured in the natural perfection of the orange.  The quality of Cointreau liqueur lies, above all, in the quality of its ingredients. Found in nearly all meridians, the orange has developed different flavours, aromas, and characteristics reflecting the particularities of its terroir. From Brazil to Spain, Ghana to Senegal—Cointreau sources its sweet and bitter orange peels from respected producers before blending them to perfection.

Here’s another great brunch cocktail that puts an orange-y spin on a traditional summer favourite. Introducing the delectable…
