Making an Orographic Effect (A Geo-cocktail For Those on the Windward Side of High Places)

I wanted to make one more small addition to our January blog carnival topic, by introducing a final drink: The Orographic Effect. This is just a take on the Spanish coffee specially designed for those of us in the Pacific Northwest that have to deal with the veil of clouds that covers the western side of the Cascades for 2/3 of the year. This drink will give you a boost, and tastes great!

Recipe for an Orographic Effect:

  • 1 oz. Rogue Hazelnut Rum
  • .5 oz. Triple Sec
  • Fill glass with freshly brewed coffee
  • Top off with honey sweetened cream

Watch as the clouds of coffee billow through the cocktail and then sip with great enjoyment.

Here’s a not very helpful video I made using the new Vine app that’s available for iPhone…

The brewing method I used for the coffee is a vacuum pot.
