Kaffe (coffee) has long been used as an ingredient in spirits and cocktails, and it has a special place in the hearts of Norwegians and Norwegian-Americans. Whether you like kicking off Sunday brunch with a Maple Whisky Coffee or sipping an Espresso Martini over happy hour, coffee cocktails can be enjoyed at just about any time of day, and are sure to get a good "buzz" going in just about every way!

Participants in this class will learn how to make three coffee cocktails at home: a Hot Maple Whiskey Coffee, a Chocolate Espresso Martini, and a Norwegian Snow, a variation on the White Russian. Class participants will learn a bit of the history behind these classic coffee cocktails, as well as how to make your own coffee liqueur with cold brew you make at home using Impact Coffee (roasted in Decorah, IA). We'll also go over some basic cocktail crafting techniques that, paired with a few simple ingredients and good quality coffee and spirits, will allow you to make and enjoy a delicious variety of coffee cocktails from your very own home. No special equipment necessary, whether you're a coffee geek or a budding home mixologist, or just someone who appreciates good coffee and a well-made drink – this class is for you! 

This class is also offered on March 4, 2021.

Supplies: The cost of the class includes a kit shipped to your home with pre-ground Impact Coffee for making cold brew and a packet of Impact Coffee beans for hot brew, a Vesterheim-branded lowball glass, woven dish towel, jigger, and spices (a $30 value). An ingredient list will be included to source fresh materials for your class. Recipes will be shared with participants after the live Zoom class. You'll also need a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the contiguous United States, additional shipping charges may apply. Please contact jtorkelson@vesterheim.org when you register for more information. 

Special Instructions: When registering for the class, please make sure to use the address you'd like the kit shipped to, and the email address you'd like the Zoom meeting invitation sent to. You will receive links to the Zoom session by email sometime during the week prior to the class.
