This is the only summer drink you need. Period. 

As refreshing as they come, the Shoeless Joe by Bon Appetit is packed with flavor and super easy to make.

We tweaked the recipe slightly by incorporating Topo Chico instead of club soda...because, well...Topo Chico.

Preparation

BLACK CHERRY SIMPLE SYRUP

Bring juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add sugar and cook, stirring, until dissolved, about 3 minutes. Let cool. Transfer to a jar, cover, and chill.

DO AHEAD: Syrup can be made 1 week ahead. Keep chilled.

COCKTAIL

For each cocktail, mix 1 oz. black cherry simple syrup and 1 oz. coffee in a rocks glass. Add ice to fill, then 3 oz. club soda and 3 oz. cola. Garnish with lime wedge.
