Rev Things Up This Holiday Season with The Coffee Cocktail at Beverley’s

The holidays are here, y'all. And, if we're honest, we could all probably use a pick-me-up here and there this season.

Between the gift shopping, turkey basting and family, a little caffeine couldn't hurt. But how do you do it without having your mom count how many cocktails and coffees you've had? How about a drink that's both?

Zak Kolbas, a bartender at Beverley’s, came up with what he calls "a marriage of a carajillo and an espresso martini," and we're really into it.

This cocktail, served during brunch, brings together vodka with a coffee liqueur and Licor 43, then quadruples down with a bit of espresso. All of it together really does the trick. A light sprinkle of orange zest on top also gives it a lovely scent.

And it's not just a great mix of flavors; it's also gorgeous, thanks to the striation of the coffee liqueur. Mom will think you're just having a chilled latte, but you know it's really a pick-me-up with a kick-me-up!

Sobre la Mesa ($11): vodka, Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur, Licor 43, espresso, nutmeg, orange zest

Beverley's Dallas, 3215 N. Fitzhugh Ave. (Knox/Henderson). Brunch served 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
