Thanks to a new beverage that’s set to debut this summer, your morning cup of coffee may just become a little more exciting. Well, that’s if you’re looking for a coffee that contains double the caffeine of a normal cup of joe PLUS alcohol.
Yep, it’s here folks. You can now have coffee and a cocktail (kind of) at the same time. Meet: Bad Larry’s Cold Hard Brew.
Although mixing coffee with alcohol is nothing new, the drink did make history as it is the first alcoholic coffee beverage to be commercially sold.
According to the brand, the canned drink “[straddles] the line between coffee and beer.”
Each 11.5-ounce can contains 6 percent ABV, which is on the higher end of average when it comes to alcohol content in beer. And with each can containing 180 milligrams of caffeine, you’ll be consuming almost as much caffeine as you would if you were to down Starbuck’s non-alcoholic grande Cold Brew.
The Wisconsin-based company behind the drink said that the locally-sourced cold brew is first steeped before it is infused with nitrogen. Then before canning the drink in a fun retro-inspired can, they add malt liquor.
Now that we have you wanting to dash to your nearest liquor or grocery store to pick up a batch of this delicious-sounding brew—don’t grab your keys just yet.
Bad Larry’s Hard Cold Brew website states that the beverage will be launching in stores across the Midwest this summer, and according to Bad Larry’s social media, it looks like at least one store has it in stock. The brand shared this image below on May 24 with this announcement:
IT’S FINALLY HERE!!! $9.99 a 4 pack in your favorite liquor store, if it’s not in stock slam your fists on the counter and demand that they order some for you
Simplemost has reached out to Bad Larry’s for a complete list of retailers, and we will update this story with additional details as we receive them.
While you wait for Bad Larry’s to come to your neck of the woods, you can always just spike your own coffee (you could try one of these ideas). If you’re looking to stay alert but want the flavor of alcohol in your cup of joe, try Jack Daniel’s Coffee, which gives you the flavor of Jack and coffee but without any trace of alcohol.
