Fireside Chat

A customer favorite for many years, our Fireside Chat, is warming and bright.  An orange clove syrup poured into your coffee, or a cocktail will make your spirits bright!

What You Need

  • 1 tbsp whole cloves
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • fresh brewed cup of coffee

How To Make It

Make the orange clove syrup:

  1. Combine water, sugar, orange zest, and cloves in a saucepan.  Bring to boil and reduce to simmer.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain out cloves and orange zest with a fine mesh strainer or through a fine colander (orange may be kept for eating or juicing, but use it within 2 days).
  3. Refrigerate the strained syrup. It will keep for up to 2 weeks.

Make the Fireside Chat:

  1. Combine one 10 oz cup of Snowshoe Seasonal Blend brewed to taste and 1 tbsp orange clove syrup, finish with cream of choice, even whipped! If desired, add 1.5 oz gold rum, straight bourbon, or a quality sweet vermouth like Cocchi Torino.

Bonus: Make a Fireside Old Fashioned:

  1. Combine 2 oz bourbon (we like a high-proof whiskey like Old Grandad Bonded), 1/3 – 1/2 oz of orange clove syrup (depending on your sweetness preference), and a few dashes of aromatic bitters in a glass stirring jar filled with ice. Stir for 60 seconds. Strain and garnish with a strip of organic orange zest.
