How do you like your coffee?

Who says coffee only works wonders to drive those Monday blues away? (Well it does but…) You know, that time on Sunday when you suddenly feel Monday creeping in and the long week bogs you down. That’s when you know, you need a hint of caffeine even before Monday begins. 

That’s right! For all you coffee-lovers out there, this one’s for you. 

We’ve put together some kickass coffee cocktails just for you. Thanks to our expert – Andrew Young, Reserve & Luxury Brand Ambassador at Diageo who helped us concoct these delicious cocktails.

20ml Tanqueray London Dry Gin
20ml Campari
20ml Rosso Vermouth
15ml Cold Brew Coffee
