I’m no Gordon Ramsay, but I know a genius food pairing when I see it. Animal crackers dipped in frosting? Iconic. Root beer and vanilla ice cream? Legendary. But red wine and cold brewed coffee? Sounds like my taste buds are about to go to heaven!

A red wine and cold brew blend really does exist, by the way, and it’s made by Apothic Brew. According to Cosmo, it “has a very strong coffee aroma, but it tastes more like red wine with hints of chocolate than your straight-up morning cup of joe.”
It’s available starting April 1 — and it totally has my attention.
Basically, it’s alcohol and caffeine in one, but somehow it strikes me as slightly classier (and safer) choice than a Four Loko that won’t lead to any headaches or embarassment. With the amount of money I’ve spent on cold brew lately (thanks, midterms szn), I might as well kill two birds with one stone and have it in my red wine.
It sounds like a pairing fit for a queen, or maybe for an overexerted college student who likes to treat herself. Either way, cheers!
