'Morning Wood' is the name of a unique cocktail-inspired coffee beverage that's served at Blackwood Coffee Bar on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip.

What makes this coffee drink noteworthy is that it all begins with a cold brew base, which is combined with a half-and-half and simple syrup and shaken. The concoction is served to patrons in a stout-style glass and rimmed with a sweet mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. As well as making the drink look especially festive, the sweeteners serve to counter the smoky, strong flavors of the black coffee base.

This upleveled coffee beverage plays off the public's current obsession with cold brew coffee drinks, as well as flavorful natural beverage infusions.
