Friday Morning

Friday Morning

This is how I kick off my weekend: with an effervescent, ultra-light, and complex cup of coffee. Choose a bitter that’s not too strong; you want it to balance the other flavors. Dehydrated citrus is a staple in my bar but feel free to use a wheel of fresh citrus instead. Serves 1.


  • Ice
  • 2 fl oz cold brew coffee (not concentrate)
  • ½ fl oz Campari
  • A dash of your fave bitters (I like Dashfire’s J. Thomas Decanter Bitters in this)
  • Simple syrup, to taste (I like 2 teaspoons)
  • Dehydrated or fresh orange wheel
  • Sparkling Water, Club Soda, or Mineral Water (I like Topo Chico)


  1. In a small glass, combine ice, coffee, campari, bitters, and simple syrup. Mix well then add fizzy water to top or to taste. Garnish with orange wheel. Get some good work done.
  2. Alternatively, if you’re a slow sipper, mix ice, coffee, campari, bitters, and simple syrup in a cocktail pitcher. Mix well then strain into a small glass, top with fizzy water, and garnish with orange wheel.
