If you are as tired of using Kahlua as we are, this new spirit from the other side of the pond may catch your interest. Introducing Conker Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur.
While a lot of coffee liqueurs manage to capture the roasty, leathery notes that typify a cup from a greasy-spoon diner, this drink manages to provide a much more dynamic flavor. Rather than just commingling a burnt taste with liquor, Conker has developed something with a deeper, darker taste to it that is balanced out by a citrusy, floral set of notes. The U.K. distiller has achieved this balance by doing a couple different things. First, they hand picked varietal coffee beans from Brazil and Ethiopia to balance one another out. Then, after dialing in the roast for each they blended and cold brewed the beans. This process of cold-brewing eliminates all of the acidity and bitterness – leaving nothing but a smooth, complex drink perfect for enjoying on the rocks or in a cocktail. Watch out, Kahlua. You have some serious competition.
