California Coffee

November 11, 2020

Our take on the classic "Kentucky Coffee", but with some flavors of west coast life mixed in. We're opting to use a California whiskey, because the South isn't the only place who knows how to make good bourbon! We're particularly fond of Cutwater Spirits bourbon. It also calls for coffee to pep you up and we recommend Drink Coffee Do Stuff Hell Yeah! blend for a little touch of sweet. Lastly, coconut milk, because Californians love our milk alternatives. This delicious drink will warm you up for chilly beach days and it goes down smooth.

Single Serving/Firelight 750 To-Go

  • 2 / 5.5 oz bourbon
  • 4 / 11 oz medium to dark roast coffee
  • 2 / 5.5 oz mint simple syrup*
  • 1 / 3 oz coconut milk
  • Garnish: fresh mint

Pour bourbon and fresh mint simple syrup* into your 375 or 750 flask and stir. Add fresh brewed coffee. Using full-fat coconut milk, whisk until stiff peaks form and spoon into your flask. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig if desired and serve warm. 

*To make the Fresh Mint Simple Syrup: Combine 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar in a small saucepan with 10 fresh mint leaves. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture reduces slightly. Remove from heat at this point but it's not necessary to let the syrup cool to room temperature since you're adding it to a warm drink.
