It’s that time of year! It’s time for my annual experiment with holiday flavors. I recently picked up a bottle of Eastside Distillery’s Hue-Hue Coffee Rum. I’ve been intrigued by the idea of coffee rum, especially since this expression is made with cold-brew.
Cold-brew aromatic free-trade, single-origin Arabica coffee beans grown at the Finca El Paternal Estate in Huehuetenango, Guatemala and proudly sourced & light-roasted through Portland Roasting Company. The brew is then blended with premium silver rum and a trace amount of Demerara sugar in a memorable marriage of flavors, giving our Hue-Hue a natural, deep, smooth richness. Great for sipping or for mixing in a variety of warm-your-insides drink recipes, our delicious coffee rum is a favorite among bartenders for its flavor, versatility and lack of sweetness.
To pair this lovely rum, I decided to mix this with the cinnamon Vodka Brand, HEEET. This high-quality, luxury cinnamon spirit combines the crisp taste of vodka with all natural ingredients to set your tongue ablaze. Together, I’ve mixed this to create the right Spiked Holiday Coffee
