Good Monday to y’all in deepest darkest January! If you, like me, partied a little too much this weekend, then you probably need a coffee. You probably need a coffee-cocktail. You probably need a Tiki coffee-cocktail. BOOM.
If you want to share a tropical drink during the month of January, use the hashtag #TikiTheSnowAway on Instagram and Twitter, or tag homebargirl on reddit.
I am writing this to y’all at midnight with temperatures outside below 20° F here in ass-cold Brooklyn. The irony that I’m about to post an iced coffee Tiki drink is not lost on me. But hey, isn’t that what Tiki The Snow Away is all about?
In the world of the make believe, we have found our joy.
Here are your cast of characters: DD’s Spiced Denizen Rum, Espresso, Coco Lopez, Piña, Lime, and some tasty nutmeg.
This is both my first time making a Tiki coffee-cocktail and my first time photographing the “Nudie Mug”. Isn’t it a nice Nudie Mug? How luscious her currrrrves. How excellently sculpted her handle. Thank you Nudie Mug.
- 2 oz DD’s Spiced Rum
- 1/2 oz cold Espresso (sub Cold Brew Coffee)
- 1/2 oz Coco Lopez (sub Coconut Cream)
- 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 oz Lime Juice
- Garnish: Tiki Paddle, freshly grated Nutmeg
Combine ingredients over ice and short shake like a rocket. Strain into Tiki mug over crushed ice. Grate nutmeg on top and garnish with Tiki Paddle.
May these chilly times be filled with enough Café Paraiso to wake you up and give you life!
