Celebrate National Coffee Day with coffee cocktails from Undertow

Nitro Coffee Float
4-6 oz. Sam Adams Nitro Coffee Stout 
1oz cold brew coffee
.75 oz. Frangelico
.75 oz. Braulio (or favorite amaro)
Ice cream and condiments 

Shake and strain into Pilsner glass. Top 3/4 of the way with Sam Adams Nitro Coffee Stout (4-6 oz.). Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Garnish with crushed hazelnuts (add whipped cream, sprinkles, cherry and chocolate for photos)

Cold Brew Negroni
1 oz. cold brew-infused Campari
1 oz. gin
1 oz. sweet vermouth 
Strong ground coffee

First fill a mason jar or similar vessel halfway with coffee grounds and pour in the Campari. That can steep for as little as ten minutes, or as long as overnight, depending on how much coffee flavor you're aiming for. Strain the coffee out with a standard coffee filter, add equal amounts of gin and sweet vermouth, stir with ice, and strain into an old fashion glass with more ice and a slice of orange.

Upside Down
1 can espresso (such as Starbucks Double shot)
1 mini Frangelico bottle
1 oz. rum
.5 oz. orgeat, an almond syrup (you can order it online or make it yourself)

Toss about a third of that can of espresso (drink or pour out the rest), the rum, and the orgeat into a shaker with ice. Shake it around and carefully pour the mixture back into the can the espresso came in. Stick a straw into the can and then insert the mini Frangelico upside down into the mouth of the can, which should just fit if you give it a good shove.
