The Weekend Cocktail: Making Wolfgang Puck's Iced Coffee Cocktails

Print This Post Print This Post

BY GWEN KENNEALLY

Did you know that August is National Coffee Month? Well,  it’s way too warm to drink a hot cup of joe, so Wolfgang Puck has created some yummy cold brewed coffee in four varieties. The flavors, inspired by his famous pastries and crème brûlée, include Vanilla Fusion, Double Blend Mocha (his personal favorite), Crème Caramel, and Cafe Au Lait. Each of these organic, kosher 8.5-ounce drinks contains just 120 calories.  Enjoy as a coffee drink , or better yet, try mixing  one of these lovely cocktails. Okay, so it’s not exactly your morning brew, but it is delicious and refreshing come happy hour. I wonder if Puck will serve these cocktails when he opens CUT at the Dorchester Collection’s new 45 Park Lane hotel in London next month?
