Mocktail Night / by Tanner Ruminer

Hey there.

Tanner had a great idea to create some coffee cocktails. Below he talks a little bit about his idea and the upcoming event he and Tyler are working on. 

Inspiration

Before I explain the Mocktail Party in further detail, I feel it's necessary to explain the inspiration behind this event.

If you’ve been in Oklahoma City long, you have probably had the pleasure of enjoying a drink from at least one, if not many of the amazing craft breweries, bars, or coffee shops in the area. Being located in the hub of OKC, we are deeply appreciative and inspired by our specialty drink neighbors. They consistently show us that there are always new, innovative, creative, and most importantly, delicious drinks to be tried.

So we want to thank all of the great craftspeople that we are surrounded by for always amazing us with their passion and creativity.

Mocktails

We feel that Specialty Coffee and Specialty Cocktails are like cousins. Both take place behind a bar. Both show a level of dedication to a craft. Both areas are full of smart and passionate people that love what they do and want to see their communities grow!

So we got to thinking. How can we shine a spotlight on what our neighbors are doing for people that maybe otherwise wouldn’t experience it? Or people that just have a love for both coffee and mixed drinks?

The solution that we came to is a Mocktail Night.

This event will be hosted after hours at Clarity on May 17 from 7pm to 9pm.


Tyler and I have curated a menu of five drinks inspired by classic cocktails, prepared in a way that blends well with the craft of specialty coffee.

We designed ways of using coffee as a substitute for alcohol, imitating flavor aspects that might come specifically from alcohol, using ingredients that share those flavors. Each drink will be priced appropriately, try one or try all of them (but I am really excited for you to try all of them if I'm being honest)!

The Menu

We really want you to be as excited about these creations as we are, so here is a little sneak peek of the menu that we have put together. Sneak peek in the sense of, it is the whole menu, but we will explain each drink in more detail the night of the event!
