This weekend we had the pleasure of attending Edible Orlando’s second annual Field to Feast event. Acclaimed chefs from Walt Disney World gathered at Long & Scott Farms and showcased locally sourced dishes. The dinner took place right in middle of the farm. As dinner was served and night fell, guests dined under the stars.
The event was a celebration of Florida farmers, chefs and artisans. As you can imagine, fresh ingredients and culinary excellence abounded. As Executive Chef at Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen, these are two ideals I care for deeply.
We have a saying at Barnie’s: You’ve probably traveled further for your meal than your food has. We source the majority of our ingredients from local farms. In fact, we use Zellwood corn from Long & Scott Farms in our Zellwood Corn Chowder.
Attendees came out in droves for this spectacular feast. And a spectacular evening calls for a cocktail that is just as spectacular. Here, we debuted a new coffee cocktail: The Rise & Shine.
The Rise & Shine is our take on the classic Alive & Kicking cocktail, but with a cold-brewed coffee twist!
The cocktail gets its caffeine kick from Barnie’s Blend® BREWSTICKS®. Because BREWSTICKS is a liquid cold-brewed coffee concentrate, it’s the perfect ingredient to flavor all of your recipes! The cold-brewed coffee blends and mixes seamlessly – with no brewing required.
The cocktail was such a hit among Field to Feast attendees, we had to share our mixologist recipe so you can create it at home.
Here’s what you’ll need to create the Rise & Shine Coffee Cocktail:
- 1 oz Fernet
- ¾ oz Amaro
- ¾ oz Grand Marnier
- ½ oz Simple Syrup
- 1 Barnie’s Blend BREWSTICKS
Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour and serve in a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange twist. Yields one serving. Sip and enjoy!
Yours in coffee & cuisine,
