k i c k - t a i l !

You know those grey, rainy mornings that feel totally romantic and all you want to do is put on your favorite yoga pants, really comfy socks, curl up on the couch and binge watch netflix?  yeah, those are our favorite days. since kristina and i have started this company we tend to spend many afternoons curled up on the couch working and drinking (far too much) coffee.  around 5pm (read 3pm) it's cocktail hour and we’re not quite ready to give up the caffeine.  so we came up with this combo caffeine cocktail that was just PERFECT for that late afternoon pick me up.  

ingredients for cocktail:

4oz stumptown cold brew

2oz patron xo cafe

1oz kahlua

ingredients for rim:

3 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

1tbsp trader joes pumpkin spice coffee grounds

quarter lime

garnish with donut hole of choice

1. mix all ingredients for the rim on a large plate until they are well blended.  zest your glass by running your lime along the rim of the glass creating an ‘adhesive’ for your rim mixture.  once your glass has been zested turn upside-down and place rim in sugar, cinnamon, and coffee mixture.  make small circles with the glass so that all edges are covered equally.  fill with fresh ice.

2. mix all liquid ingredients in shaker with ice, shake until mixture looks slightly frothy, then strain cocktail over fresh ice, and garnish with donut hole of choice.  enjoy!
