Flavor profile: vanilla undertones with refreshing fizz

Even though this recipe is a new twist on the classic rum and coke, we call it a kickstarter because it usually kicks off the beginning of a great night.  Granted, we may be a little biased, but we think Java Kick goes with just about any combo.

Next time you’re at the bar perusing the drink menu without a clue, try asking for a kickstarter! You can never go wrong with a classic.  Mix one part Java Kick with your favorite rum (we recommend Captain Morgan), add ice, and garnish with a lime wedge.

While you can always find Java Kick online, we’re available at many retailers in the local NJ area including Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, Gotham, NetCost Market, Uncle Gino’s Marketplace and Costco. Come find us!
