Lively Libations - In Love With Giving Back (February 2020)
Saturday February 1, 2020 // By Multiple Authors

Here at Barista Pro Shop, we have decided to also do our part in giving back to our community. This month, our Colorado based bakery, J Street Biscuit Co., will be offering a “Puppy Love Sprinkle Cookie” and will donate part of the proceeds to RezDawg Rescue in order to aid in Animal Rescue.
Enjoy this cookie a bit more knowing that you are supporting our efforts to Give Back to a local animal welfare non-profit, RezDawg Rescue, every time you buy one! Your purchase would help aid raising funds for a donation to help RezDawg save furry friends by providing critical medical care, foster programs, & adoption events to find their FUR-ever homes.
RezDawg Rescue works with rescues in CO, AZ and NM to relocate cats or dogs by providing resources to foster and adopt these lovable companions searching for shelter. Since March of 2012, they have transported thousands of at-risk dogs and cats to safety, solely on generous donations from caring individuals like you who see how dire the need is in and around the Navajo reservation. In 2018 alone, RezDawg saved 1,6254 total rescues!
(This cookie is only available to J Street Biscuit Co. customers who are in local delivery range.)

Kristen's Heart Filled Cupcakes
The traditional snack cake reinvented. Made with Ghirardelli chocolate and baked fresh, these hand held desserts will not disappoint.
Read About: Ghirardelli's Give Back Programs
Yield: 12 Heart Shaped Cupcakes
• ½ cup of Hot, Brewed Coffee
• ¾ cup of All-Purpose Flour
• ½ cup of Ghirardelli Majestic Dutch Processed Cocoa
• 1 cup of Sugar
• ¼ tsp. of Baking Powder
• ¾ tsp. of Baking Soda
• ¼ tsp. of Salt
• 1 Egg
• ¼ cup of Vegetable Oil
• ½ cup of Buttermilk
• ½ tsp. of Vanilla
• 5 oz. of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Chocolate Chips
• ½ cup of Half n Half
Cream Filling Ingredients
• ½ cup (1 stick or 1/4 lb.) of Butter
• ⅔ cup of Evaporated Milk
• ½ cup of Shortening
• 2 tsp. of Vanilla
• 1 cup of Sugar
Optional Garnish: Ghirardelli Barista Classic White Chips (Cupcake Topper)
Cake: Start by preheating oven to 350 degrees. Place cocoa in a medium bowl and pour the coffee over the mixture. Let sit, covered, for 5 minutes, then whisk the mixture gently until smooth.
In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Whisk the oil, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract into the cooled chocolate mixture until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth.
Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake cupcakes until set and just firm to the touch (15 to 20 minutes). Let the cupcakes cool in the tin on a wire rack until cool enough to handle (about 10 minutes). Remove each cupcake from the tin, set on the wire rack, and let cool completely before filling and frosting, (about 1 hour). (Unfrosted cupcakes can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 day.)
For the filling: Mix all ingredients in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer without stopping for 30 minutes. With a pastry bag, and a long pastry tip, poke a hole in the center of each cupcake and fill.
Finish by dipping each cupcake in ganache to cover the filling . Let cool until firm, then top with your choice of decoration. Enjoy!!
Mikenna’s Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz
This bright, sparkling refresher is almost as great as the brands used to create it:
From their commitment to organizations such as ‘CORE’ (Children of Restaurant Employees) & ‘Step Up For Students’ to supporting bee colonies & “EPA WasteWise”, Monin helps not only people in their community, but also professionals in their industry.
Similarly, since 2007, iSi has put its faith in employees from the industry and trade group REiNTEGRA, a charitable organization based in Vienna that aims to reintegrate mentally ill people back into working life.
Yield: 4, 8 oz. Drink
Optional Garnish: A Wedge of Grapefruit & Fresh Flowers
Directions: Mix the syrups with water in an iSi Soda Siphon (quart capacity). After firmly attaching the lid and loading a charger, give it a good shake (see the iSi Stainless Steel Soda Siphon Usage Guide & Safety Brochure). Chill to make the drink more bubbly. Fill your glass with flavored soda water & garnish as desired!
Steven’s The Lumberjack
This burly drink isn’t for the faint of heart...but it is for the thrill-seeking coffee nut! Earth, fire, air, and water all come together in this drink to create a taste and aroma that can’t be matched - even by Paul Bunyon himself. A smoky glass, cold brew given new life through nitro technology, and a sweet maple finish. What more could you ask for?
Two Leaves and a Bud is inspired by organizations that have taken strides to ensure a higher quality of living, so they support their valuable and effective missions because they want to have a positive impact on the world. Protect Our Winters was founded by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones to build awareness and community-based action around climate change. POW mobilizes athletes and winter-enthusiasts who are concerned about the effects of climate change. One percent of sales from the Purpose-Filled Teas is donated to POW.
Yield: 4, 8 oz. Drinks
Optional Garnish: Cold Foam
Pair With: Field Trip Maple BBQ Pork Jerky
Directions: Start by smoking loose leaf Mountain High Chai and placing the glass over the smoke to prime the glass. Next, mix equal parts cold brew concentrate and water with maple spice syrup in an iSi Nitro Whip container. Firmly attach the lid, load a N2 Nitro Charger and give it a good shake. Dispense the nitro’d cold brew over a glass of ice & top with cold foam if desired.
Bill’s Howard Red Lemonade
In an age of sodas, lemonades, teas, bubblies, and build your own drinks, what sounds better than a nice refreshing glass of lemonade? Who doesn’t like something sweet, and refreshingly sour that also benefits other people?
DaVinci cares wholeheartedly about this industry. Their future plans and reinvigorated brand are proof of their passion and devotion. And this goes far beyond operations and product creation; they care about everything from the source through to the final perfect serve – from ‘Blossom to Beverage’. They fund projects from The Café Femenino Foundation to sponsoring and supporting the Speciality Coffee Association and World Coffee Events.

Tobi’s Tara Jane Chai
Simple. Refreshing. Bursting with fruity flavor & a sweet after bite, this chai is made for sipping on a lazy Sunday. Inspired by one of the most generous people I know for this season of giving back.
With this deep commitment to animal welfare, David Rio donates annually to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)’s elephant and tiger programs. These donations contribute to IFAW's global initiatives, such as protecting endangered tigers and elephants around the world. David Rio has also supported the San Francisco Bay Area’s Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA since 2002, as well as partnered with Cat Tales Zoological Park in Mead, Washington since 1999, where the company adopted a Bengal Tiger, Atlas.
