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.

    Inspired by the underwater wildlife that would send any surfer’s adrenaline level to the max, this sweet and herbaceous cocktail pairs excellently with oysters on the halfshell, raw or char grilled. We use predominantly blanco tequila for the backbone, so the agave flavor shines through on every sip.

    Celebrating National Public Lands Day in Point Reyes National Seashore

    September 22, 2021

    Beginning your descent as you fly into SFO, you’ll see a knife edge gash of water cutting into California’s coastline, effectively separating Tomales Point from the rest of Marin County. You are looking at Tomales Bay, a body of water that is the actual San Andreas Fault. It’s part of fog-covered Point Reyes National Seashore and it’s also entirely encompassed by the infamous Red Triangle, home of the largest Great White Sharks in the world. This peninsula would absolutely be the part of California that slices off during an earthquake and also the destination we planned to celebrate 2021’s National Public Lands Day.
