Ingredients (9)

For the coffee:

4 1/2 ounces coarsely ground coffee (about 1 3/4 cups)

3 1/2 cups cold water

For the cocktails:

2 cups cold water

8 ounces chilled amaretto

2 ounces chilled Pernod

Ice

Milk, for serving

Instructions

For the coffee:

1 Place the coffee grounds in a 2-quart pitcher, add the water, and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and let steep at room temperature for at least 12 hours and up to 1 day.

2 Line a fine-mesh strainer with a standard coffee filter and fit it over a medium bowl. Working in batches, slowly pour the coffee into the filter until all of the liquid has passed through the strainer (the coffee will pass through in a slow stream; don’t force it through); stop when you reach the solids at the bottom of the pitcher (don’t pour them in). Discard the grounds and the contents of the strainer.

3 Wash and dry the pitcher. Transfer the strained coffee into the pitcher. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 5 days.

For the cocktails:

1 When ready to serve, add the water, amaretto, and Pernod to the strained coffee and stir to combine. Serve over ice, passing milk on the side. Chow.com
