Life moves fast, so when a coffee shop gives you the chance to get two buzzes with one drink, it merits your attention. Fort Worth coffee shop Ampersand takes its name seriously. Its new coffee-esque cocktail, Chocolate Wasted, is buzzy and boozy and sweet, giving you the chance to get caffeinated while getting a little festive. A nice helping of Avión and the housemade cold-brew work together to make the perfect dessert.
Chocolate Wasted ($8): Avión Silver Tequila, Avión Espresso, Ampersand housemade cold-brew, whole milk
Ampersand, 3009 Bledsoe St., Fort Worth
