We have a bit of a coffee habit here at Imbibe HQ, so we don’t need much of an excuse to pour ourselves a second (or third) cup. Still, with National Coffee Day this Sunday (September 29) we couldn’t help but get a little jittery thinking about all the coffee-fueled ways to toast the occasion. From a citrus-spiked cold brew to a mezcal- and coffee-laced dessert, these five recipes will help stretch the day’s celebrations beyond your morning mug.
