the beloved quarterback all football season.
The Cool Brees is an iced adult beverage made with CoolBrew, the local coffee and chicory concentrate.
'We came up with this drink because the games are early and not everybody likes Bloody Marys,' said MJ Sauer, one of the bar owners.
of the CoolBrew and went with the Cool Brees. We thought it was a real
nice drink people could have in the morning, and it's generally hot, so
do it over ice. It was actually a very popular drink.'
Drew Brees 'has been
a godsend to New Orleans,' Sauer said. 'He pretty
much followed our own plight. The guy struggled to come back after he
got injured; we got injured, and we're coming back together.'
If you can't get CoolBrew concentrate [www.coolbrew.com], make a pot
of double-strength chicory coffee and chill it."
