Cold-Brewed Driver

First a rich, purple gulp for they eyes, this cocktail is a perfect goodbye for summer, or hello for fall. A winning combination of flavors takes dark and earthy pomegranate and deep and tart summer berries and brightens them up with a sweet flash orange. Add to the complexity and voltage by finishing with a splash of cold brew coffee. Don’t let the name fool you, the driver should sit this one out.
