We‘ve gotta have the two Cs in our lives for sanity reasons: coffee and cocktails. And it seems like The Coffee Academics have heard our needs and harmonised both coffee and cocktails in this beautiful collaboration with master mixologist Antonio Lai from Quinary.
Interestingly, all six cocktail creations carry different types of coffee from The Coffee Academics, from your regular espresso shots to nitro coffee.
The Cascara Collins ($88) is a feminine favourite showcaing fresh raw sugar syrup made from the husks of coffee cherries. Although there wasn‘t even a hint that this cocktail was made from coffee, I loved how Antonio used the ingredient, a relative of the coffee bean, by playing with its sweetness.
Another refreshing and Instagram-worthy tipple was the Coconut Brew ($88), featuring TCA‘s cold-brew coffee, vodka, coconut water and pineapple.
For those who like it strong and want a whack from both caffeine and alcohol, have a go at the Signature Martini ($78), with a shot of TCA house-blend espresso, vodka and Kahlúa coffee-flavoured liqueur.
Or try the TCA Old-Fashioned ($88), which features a large ice-drip coffee ball, orange peel and whisky. Those into aromatics can get a pick-me-up with the Morning Nitro ($88), a fragrant cocktail made with nitrogen-infused coffee, pandan syrup, gin and Martini Rosso vermouth that has the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.
