Ready to up your cocktail game at home? We challenged April Leslie, mixologist at Lineage Restaurant in Wailea, Maui, to create a cocktail featuring our Nitro Cold Brew coffee as a key ingredient. The result? The kind of cocktail that comes along once in a brew moon. “The Funky Cold Mahina was inspired by a Dirty Chai Latte. We combine Hapa Nitro Cold Brew Coffee with our house-made Coconut Almond Chai Syrup, add Drambuie and Averna Amaro Siciliano liqueurs, and Diplomatico rum to bring it all together." Check out the recipe below!
