The Clash of the Stag

Clash of the Stag

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

This recipe is from The Art & Craft of Coffee Cocktails by Jason Clark.


  • 15 ml/½ oz cola
  • 35 ml/1¼ oz Glenfiddich 12 Years Old
  • 22.5 ml/¾ oz Jägermeister
  • 7.5 ml/¼ oz Vana Tallinn liqueur
  • 45 ml/1½ oz cold brew coffee
  • 1 star anise
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 orange zest (4 cm/1½ in)
  • Garnish: Cinnamon cocoa dust & 1 star anise


  1. Add the cola to a chilled rocks glass.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a cocktail shaker, fill with cubed ice and shake well.
  3. Strain into the glass over the cola.
  4. Garnish with the cinnamon cocoa dust and star anise.


This drink is pretty versatile with regard to coffee due to the other robust flavours, so give it a go with whatever strong cold brew you have to hand.

Jägermeister and malt whisky work wonderfully together with the cold brew. Vana Tallinn liqueur, a lovely citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, rum-based liqueur from Estonia, is not essential to the recipe, but does pair really well with the other ingredients. If unavailable, it can be substituted with Cointreau.
