An ode to my favorite holiday hero, John McClane. When you need a drink that'll help you save Nakitomi plaza, this is the sweetened, coffee based soda you want.

 4 oz Soda Water
 4 oz Nitro-infused Flash Brew (Mexican Coffee)
 2 oz Califia Barista Blend Oat Milk
 1.50 oz Gingerbread Syrup(cane sugar + ginger, molasses, fall spices)
 1 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.25 oz Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters
 Cinnamon Garnish
1

The first step would be to start your flash brewed coffee. We create a big batch by taking 215 grams of Mexican Coffee (from a women's co'op in Chiapas, roasted by us) and brewing it with a half gallon of water- but directly onto 900 grams of ice.

2

For the gingerbread syrup, we steep raw ginger, molasses, and fall spices together to make a base, then pour over simple (1:1) syrup.

3

Now that the prep is done, you're ready to build your drink, in cup. We start with a scoop of ice.

4

Over the ice, pour 4 oz carbonated water.

5

Directly onto the soda, we add 4 oz of our nitro infused flash brew, and 2 oz oat milk.

6

Next, 1.5 oz of gingerbread syrup, and an oz of Mr. Black.

7

Top with .25 oz blood orange bitters for aromatics and a beautiful cinnamon stripe.
