Aquavit and Fernet-Branca spice up cold-brew coffee in this warming cocktail.

In 2014, we highlighted Portland, Maine’s Hunt + Alpine Club and Tandem Coffee on our Imbibe 75 list of trend-setting people, places and flavors. In honor of being featured, Hunt + Alpine owners Briana and Andrew Volk created this coffee cocktail, which they’ve included in their new book, Northern Hospitality.

  • ¾ oz. Fernet-Branca
  • 2 oz. cold-brew coffee
  • Whipped cream
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:double Old Fashioned
  • Garnish:pinch of grated black cardamom


Combine the aquavit, Fernet and coffee in the glass. Add ice and gently stir to incorporate and chill. Top with freshly whipped cream and grated black cardamom.
