Start Your Day with the Siberian Summer

This continues our series on breakfast drinks, where we highlight those cocktails that fortify our mornings with the gin, whiskey and resolve we need to keep going. Next up: this vodka-spiked coffee concoction to start your day.

The Knickerbocker is the only five-star hotel located in Times Square, and it’s also the place to go for a Siberian Summer. That would be the handsome cocktail featured below. Starting with a base of rich, low-acid Stumptown Cold Brew, the drink employs vodka, orgeat and a couple flavorful liqueurs for an end result that’s exactly what your morning needs.
