How to Make the Jumpstart Jalopy: Tequila, Mint, Cold Brew and a Donut

In Depth

Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Jumpstart Jalopy.

  • 2 oz tequila
  • 2 oz cold brew coffee concentrate
  • 1/2 oz mint syrup
  • splash of half-and-half
  • 1 donut hole

In a small saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer for five minutes. Strain, contain, let cool and refrigerate. Use to freshen up any beverage that’s tasting not-so-fresh.

Pour all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake the ever-loving-god-damn-sweet-fucking-hell out of it for 10-12 seconds. Strain into a Collins glass over ice. Garnish with a donut hole and enjoy the buzz before the crash.
