Look, you’re a parent. Nobody’s going to blame you if you consider spiking your morning coffee with a little whiskey occasionally. (Okay, daily.) But you’re a respectable adult with responsibilities. And a good job. And a nosey, upstanding 3-year-old who will absolutely sell you out to your partner (Daddy put something stinky in his coffee again!). So, better go with plan B: Jack Daniel’s new whiskey java.
So that you’re not disappointed, know that JD’s Tennessee Whiskey Coffee is non-alcoholic. That’s great news for your pregnant partner if she’s a fan of both coffee and brown booze (aka, a female arm wrestling champeen). It’s less great if you were actually trying to catch a buzz before breakfast. Still, that’s not a deal breaker. Honestly!
World of Coffee Roasters infuses the 100% Arabica, medium roast coffee in small batches. They use actual Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey to make it happen. It works so well, in fact, that the “distinct caramel and vanilla notes … are evident in each sip.” So, the coffee tastes like you are drinking bourbon. And the police won’t pull you over while dropping your kid off at daycare. It’s win-win all around.
Whiskey coffee’s sold in 8.8-ounce collectible tins or 1.5-ounce bags. It comes both fully caffeinated and in that other version for the old and weak which will not be mentioned here. Prices start at $7 a bag. If you feel so inclined, you can even add a campfire mug. Because, as noted, nobody’s going to judge you for drinking boozy java … As long as you’re in the woods.
