That’s how we roll.

But today? Let’s discuss the Melty Cold Brew Shake.

    This coffee cocktail is our dessert offering, and it is worth every calorie packed into it. (However, we didn’t calculate that for y’all or ourselves because sometimes, it’s best not to know and just to enjoy what you’re drinking.)

    That said, The Melty Cold Brew Shake tastes like chocolate cake, topped with coffee ice cream and Kahlua. Which is to say it is absolutely delicious and goes down smoothly and would make the perfect sweet drink to finish a meal.

    1. You are speaking my language here! I tried a coffee cocktail for the first time when I went to brunch on my honeymoon a few weeks ago. It’s such a brilliant idea! Your recipe sounds so good and simple to make. I can’t wait to try it!

      1. It really is fun, isn’t it, Jenna? I’m so glad you’re into coffee cocktails these days, too, and I’m so happy that Valorie introduced me to them and shared ’em with y’all here.

    2. This looks delicious! And your photography is amazing! I’m thinking I need to get a marble countertop backdrop next. 😀

      1. Thanks so much, Rachel! The cocktail is quite delicious, and I love the piece of marble I have for photos. You should get your hands on one, too. Thank you!

    3. Giiiiiiirl. Coffee. And Kahlua??? Yes please. I never would have thought to add Coke to a cold brew cocktail, but hot damn – I have all these ingredients, I may just have to give it a try! <3

      1. ISN’T IT JUST INSANE? Valorie is a genius… and I’m so happy she shared this with me because it’s such a delicious drink year-round. I hope you enjoy it, too!
