Our coffee-based cocktail recipes

Nos recettes de cocktails à base de café | Our coffee-based cocktail recipes

The days are getting longer and the mercury is finally rising; summer is coming! We thought it was a great opportunity to share some coffee-based cocktail recipes with you to celebrate the return of patio drinks with friends! We obviously used the high-end syrups of Montreal's thriving 3/4 d’once company, with whom we share a wall of our headquarters office in Villeray.

 

CASCARA SPRITZ

Taking off our winter coats means spritz season can finally begin! Although the classic recipe is flawless, we wanted to create a version in our image with a coffee by-product that we are particularly fond of: cascara. Cascara is spanish for husk and shell , it is the outer layer of the coffee cherry once the coffee beans have been removed. Usually an organic waste produced in large quantities during the processing of coffee or a fertilizer used on coffee farms, this product can act as a second income for the producer. Ours comes from the Helsar de Zarcero farm in Costa Rica and once brewed with boiling water and cooled, it offers a thirst-quenching result with notes of honey, apricot, orange and even tamarind. Here's how to prepare it:

 

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ oz of syrup Spritz Maison by ¾ ounce
  • 1 ½ oz of Prosecco
  • 1 oz of Cascara
  • A dash of lemon juice
  • A slice of orange for decoration
  • Serve over ice

Cascara infusion:

Ratio 1:25 (example: 20 g for 500 g)
Infusion time: 6 minutes
Ingredients: Cascara, lime, water.

  1. Weigh the cascara
  2. Add half the volume of hot water and add lime juice (to taste).
  3. Start the timer
  4. Crush the cascara and stir well
  5. Add the remaining hot water.
  6. Filter after 6 minutes and let cool.
