Coffee Manhattan

"Doesn't everyone love a little coffee drink in the afternoon or after dinner? Fancy up your Manhattan with a little cold brew and coffee liqueur to get that midday pick-me-up. Paired with chocolate and coffee bitters, this Coffee Manhattan leans heavily on the coffee flavor profile with whiskey's vanilla notes and oak flavors strong in the finish of the drink."
