July is synonymous with the dog days of summer and celebrating our freedom as a nation. Whether you spend your days outside celebrating with parades, outdoor activities with friends, or fireworks, Black Rifle Coffee Company can keep you fueled from morning until evening!
Summer’s high temperatures, sugary drinks, and too much booze can be exhausting. Instead of hitting it hard and feeling like you had one too many beers, switch your afternoon margarita with a sweet, espresso-packed drink to fuel your evening BBQ. Our bee-sting drink is a staple at the BRCC shop and an even more popular summer drink.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Use two shots of espresso or 2 ounces of cold brew concentrate and pour over ice with 2 ounces of half and half. Drizzle honey over the cream and coffee, top with ice, and enjoy. Easy and delicious!
Next on our July menu, we have espresso brownies. Did you know that adding espresso powder or finely ground coffee to recipes with cocoa powder enhances the flavor of the chocolate? That is what we are doing here. These are safe for kiddos since the amount of espresso is very minimal. It’s a simple yet extra-special twist to your everyday brownie recipe.
Let’s start baking!
