Spanish Coffee

We tested this one out on a grey, rainy Pacific NW day, and it is officially Portland-approved.

  • 1 oz New Deal Distiller’s Cut Rum
  • 1½ oz New Deal Coffee Liqueur
  • 1 dash Triple Sec
  • Hot Water Ave Coffee to fill the glass (try their El Salvador Las Delicias Pacamara)

Combine ingredients in an Irish coffee mug. Top with Mud Puddle whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Serve immediately.

Mud Puddle Whipped Cream

Whip together until stiff peaks form:

  • 4 oz heavy whipping cream,
  • 1 oz Mud Puddle Bitter Chocolate Vodka
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • pinch of coffee grounds

Makes enough for 4-6 servings. You can substitute 1 oz Coffee Liqueur for Mud Puddle and sugar if you prefer.

Ginger Hot Toddy

We crush organic ginger root in every batch of Ginger Liqueur so that you don’t have to.

  • 1.5 oz whiskey or brandy
  • 0.5 oz New Deal Ginger Liqueur
  • 1 orange wedge (squeezed)
  • 1 lemon wedge (squeezed)
  • 1 Cinnamon stick, pinch of whole cloves
  • 1 bar spoon honey (optional)
  • Lemon twist pierced with whole cloves for garnish

Combine ingredients in an Irish coffee mug, then fill glass with hot water. Garnish with lemon twist.

Winter Wonderland

Complete lusciousness in a mug. This recipe serves 2-4 people, depending upon the mug.

  • ¼ cup New Deal Vodka
  • ½ cup New Deal Coffee Liqueur
  • 2 ½ cups freshly-brewed Stumptown Coffee
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • New Deal Vodka Whipped Cream, to taste

In a saucepan heat coffee, heavy cream, Kahlua and New Deal Vodka over moderate heat until hot. Divide among heated mugs. Garnish with a generous dollop of New Deal Vodka Whipped Cream.

Mayan Monkey

For some people, hot chocolate means a small package of powder mixed into boiling water. We aren’t some people, but by the same token, we assume you didn’t come here for a diatribe on how to make hot cocoa from scratch. That said, this drinkable dessert calls for ‘Xocolatl’, an outstanding organic Mexican hot chocolate mix made by Dagoba Organic Chocolate in Ashland, Oregon. The mix is laced with chilies and cinnamon, and packs considerable heat on its own, so you’ll want to adjust the proportion of Hot Monkey to New Deal according to your tolerance.

  • 1 oz New Deal Vodka
  • 1 t Hot Monkey Pepper Vodka
  • 3 T Dagoba Xocolatl Hot Chocolate Mix (available at New Seasons Market)
  • 1 cup Whole milk
  • Vodka Whipped Cream, to taste
  • Orange Zest

Rub orange zest along rim of large ceramic or glass mug. Prepare Dagoba Xocolatl Hot Chocolate Mix according to instructions and pour into prepared mug. Add New Deal and Hot Monkey Vodkas in varying proportions according to taste. Stir well. Finish with a generous dollop of Vodka Whipped Cream, a sprinkling of cinnamon and a twist of orange zest. You might not leave home this winter.
