You had me at Cold Brew

Spring is just around the corner and what better way to get excited about warm weather than with cold drinks. This beauty of package design is Grady's Cold Brew New Orleans-Style iced coffee concentrate. It's brewed and bottled by hand in Brooklyn NY and has a label that reflexes in city roots. The typography is stealing the show and the bottle design, which I hope is glass, looks like it is a medicine bottle; it makes me think about when drinks like root beer were considered to having healing qualities. But as for flavor here is the description Grady's has described their process for this delicious brew, "Each batch is made by steeping a special blend of freshly roasted coffee and chicory in water overnight, then removing the grounds using a two-step filtration process. What’s left? A bold, velvety-smooth liquid concentrate that can be mixed with milk or water—served over ice or steaming hot." I know what I will be picking up the next time I'm in Brooklyn. Looks like a conversation starter as well as a fancy cocktail ingredient.
