Enjoy Happy Hour Any Hour


with Nomad Coffee Co.’s Unique Mocktails

Nomad Coffee Co. is a caffeine station on wheels and, at the same time, tries to feel a little bit like happy hour too.

Owner Josh Davies and his wife Jeanne say they are proud to offer some things you may not be able to find at brick and mortar coffee shops, such as their coffee mocktails. Josh says the inspiration for these caffeinated, non-alcoholic drinks came from his experience working with another Nomad employee at a call center.

“We would talk about how nice it would be to have a cocktail on the clock. When Nomad became a full-time thing, we started serving call centers in town. So, I came up with the idea to make a couple of drinks people would enjoy at work, would keep them caffeinated, and would taste like they have arrived at 5 p.m.,” says Josh.

Then, a visit to a local distillery led to the creation of their customers’ current favorite mocktail, the Smoking Train Hopper—iced coffee, a shot of espresso, house made bourbon simple syrup, cherry, hickory smoke syrup, topped off with orange bitters from Blackwater Bitters.

“[At the distillery] they were smoking cocktails that day and it was an awesome experience plus the cocktail was one of the best I’ve ever had. So, for just 50 cents more, we will smoke the Train Hopper on oak chips right in front of you,” Josh explains.

Check Instagram and Facebook on Sunday to find out where Nomad will be each week; they also do frequent giveaways.

Then, cozy up with a Smoking Train Hopper with all the fun of a cocktail, minus the hangover!
