Holly Jolly Pick Me Up: Coffee and Beer Cocktail

It’s Wednesday and couldn’t we all be tempted to sneak a little somethin’ somethin’ into our coffees this morning? Oh that’s just me? Ok. This little concoction was brewed (ha) up in the morning but I think it’s perfectly fitting to imbibe any time of day. Especially for dessert! Rich, Russian Stout with dark, cold brew coffee, topped with some creamy whip and voila!

It only takes a few ingredients to get this cocktail going. I do recommend making the simple syrup… dark brown sugar, oh yes!

Brü

I couldn’t help but notice the new trailer on my drive to work. For the past few weeks Brü has been serving up fresh coffee and flavorful granitas on south 1st street. Located in the same food truck park as Little Thai Food, it is a great little space. All of the syrups are handmade by the owner herself, they are also all vegan. Today’s special is Hibiscus Lemonade, you can keep up with the all the daily specials via Brü’s Twitter @BruAustin.

The day I stopped by it was boiling over century mark, so I opted for an iced coffee which was extra strong and helped me power through a melting afternoon. I sampled the daily granita, which was orange spice. More like a dessert than coffee to me, I will be back to try out another flavor soon.

The tiny little trailer is too cute. Bonus: she has a small selections of books you can borrow if you want to stay and read a while.

Fresh flowers are a nice touch to the service table.

Colorful chairs add a little pop to the place. There is even a few chairs tucked away behind the shade if you’re looking for a refuge from the sun.
