Time has lost meaning during this long pandemic blur. Work days sprawl into the night, Wednesdays turn to Blursdays and “I had to feed my sourdough starter” has become an entirely reasonable excuse for tardy Zoom calls. So if you’re asking yourself that existential question — do I need more coffee or happy hour? — clearly, it’s time to consider coffee cocktails.
Santa Cruz’s Verve Coffee Roasters certainly think so, because they’ve released a slew of how-tos that pair their brews with booze, from the O.G. Goody to a Nitro Old Fashioned. And there are boozeless options, too.
