Why You Need To Drink This Espresso Based Cocktail This Weekend

After the long, dark months of winter, Daylight Savings is finally here. Say goodbye to those dull, dreary afternoons and hello to an extra hour of glorious sunshine every day. The only — and we mean only — downfall here, is losing that one precious hour of Saturday night sleep when our clocks make that magical jump forward. Our solution? Wake yourself up with a boozy, coffee-based cocktail the next morning! Replace that Sunday morning Mimosa with an espresso-based cocktail that’s sure to pack a punch. We’ve crafted the Rum Shot Shake Awake, perfect for those mornings when you just can’t get yourself out of bed, but aren’t willing to sacrifice your weekend day drinking.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1.5 ounces dark rum
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 shots espresso
  • Lemon zest (Garnish)
  • Ice


Add rum, lemon juice, simple syrup, espresso, and ice to shaker. Shake to combine. Pour into tumbler and serve over ice. Enjoy!
