Black Jack RomaThis non-GMO coffee substitute, Kaffree Roma Roasted Grain Beverage, makes a delightful summer iced drink. The flavors in this recipe remind me of black licorice or Black Jack gum. It is absolutely addicting!

Makes one quart. Prep time: 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp Kaffree Roma
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 c boiling water
  • 2 c cool water
  • 3-4 drops anise extract
  • ice

Directions:

  1. In a quart-sized canning jar ('Mason jar') with a tight lid, place the Kaffree Roma crystals, molasses, brown sugar and boiling water.
  2. Cap tightly and shake until well-dissolved.
  3. Open and add the cool water and anise extract. Cap and shake.
  4. Cover and chill until served.
  5. To serve, pour over full glasses of chipped ice. If desired, add black licorice sticks to garnish.
