In Italy, ammazzacaffè (meaning “coffee killer”) is a custom that marks the transition from dolci and caffè with a small glass of amaro, to mellow out the caffeine for a spirited ending to dinner. This Averna-spiked Caffè Tonic is a modern way to have the best of both worlds.
- 2 ounces Averna
- 2 ounces cold brew coffee
- 2 ounces tonic water
- Add Averna and cold brew coffee to a chilled Collins glass filled with crushed ice.
- Stir or swizzle to combine.
- Top with chilled tonic water, adding more crushed ice if needed.
- Garnish with fresh mint.
