Cold-Brew Coffee Negroni

Coffee and Campari mix incredibly well together, with the bitter notes of the Italian favorite stretching the boundaries of coffee’s dark, earthy flavors. In this simple cold-brew coffee Negroni from Vespr Coffeebar in Orlando, the baristas use cold-brew concentrate instead of gin for a little extra oomph.


  • 1½ oz. cold-brew concentrate
  • 1 oz. Campari
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:orange peel


Stir all of the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Twist the orange peel over the cocktail, then use as a garnish.

Cold-brew concentrate: In a French press, combine 15 tablespoons of coarsely ground coffee and 16 oz. of room temperature water. Don’t plunge the strainer. Let it stand for 17 hours, then plunge to separate the grounds. Pour into a bottle and store the concentrate in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. You can also purchase premade coffee concentrate.
