CASK & KETTLE is an easy and convenient way for anyone to prepare and serve a complete, well-crafted hot cocktail. Simply pop one of the single-serve cups into your brewing system, or add hot water, and a smooth, aromatic hot cocktail is ready in seconds. In this placement, co-founders Pete Borozan and Lucinda Wright joined us to show how easily you can create a decadent boozy drink, quickly for any occasion.

Irish Coffee

The perfect balance of Irish Whiskey and robust flavor with a mild sweetness. Coffee with the aroma of smoky whiskey mixed with the welcoming allure of dark roasted beans and buttery caramel. For those that love a creamy Irish Coffee there are two tried-and-true ways to amplify the rich flavor of this drink.

  • Add ½ shot of a boozy cream liquor like Bailey’s or Rumchatta
  • A dollop of your favorite gelato/ice cream for a hard coffee float

Mexican Coffee

This coffee cocktail offers the smooth mouthfeel and light agave flavor of silver tequila combined with darker notes of roasted coffee with a whisper of Mexican chocolate at the finish. We’ve put together some traditional spins on this rich flavored favorite.

  • To dial up the chocolate add a touch of dark chocolate syrup to the mug, brew Mexican Coffee on top, give quick stir, add marshmallows (and a drizzle of chocolate if you just can’t get enough chocolate)
  • Cull and slice a fresh strawberry, rub against the lip of the mug, drop the fruit into the mug, add a splash of heavy cream and brew a hot Mexican Coffee to top it off

Hot Blonde

Enhance but not overwhelm the malty vanilla and vodka hard coffee flavor notes of this satisfying blend of lightly roasted coffee and full-bodied, crisp vodka. This drink has a beautiful sable color, decadent aroma and notes of a cozy fall afternoon.

  • Add a splash of your favorite fancy creamer and you have a boozy vanilla latte (our crew likes the new Starbuck’s Cinnamon Dolce Latte creamer)
  • Add ½ shot of your favorite holiday spirit – the vodka in this hot cocktail ‘plays well’ with your favorites

Spiked Hard Cider

If you’re looking for a crowd-pleaser, Michigan apple cider can’t be beat. This smooth, warm beverage has a fresh upfront tart apple flavor followed by a hint of vodka and cinnamon. You can add a hint of citrus or dial it up for a taste of hot apple pie. Perfect as an adults-only dessert!

  • Slice an orange (blood orange), rim the lip of the mug with the orange slice and squeeze the juice into the hot spiked cider
  • For a more decadent drink – Add whipped cream on top of the hot spiked cider and drizzle with caramel
