#NationalCheatDay with Dough!

If you’ve spent the entire month detoxing and eating sliced cucumbers in between Paleo meals, it’s time to sink your teeth into something sweet! On January 26th, Joffrey’s Coffee is partnering with Dough to celebrate #NationalCheatDay! This gluttonous holiday was made for dreamy luxuries like Maple Bacon Bars and Red Velvet Cheesecake, and to sweeten the deal we’re adding a boozy beverage to the lineup – Joffrey’s Vanilla Bourbon Latte.

Imagine a smooth, creamy latte with hints of warm vanilla, espresso and a guilt-free shot of bourbon. MMMM! This tasty addition is only available at Dough for a limited time, but the good news is, it’s easy to make at home. Here’s the recipe to satisfy your post cheat day cravings:


Joffrey’s Vanilla Bourbon Latte


  • 18 grams of Joffrey’s ground espresso (brewed)
  • 1 ounce of Monin vanilla syrup
  • 1 ounce of Buffalo Trace Bourbon
  • 6 to 8 ounces of steamed milk

How It’s Made

Combine the vanilla syrup, bourbon, and a double shot of espresso in your favorite mug.

Put 6 to 8 ounces of milk into an enclosed container and shake vigorously. Heat the milk to your desired temperature in the microwave; one minute is our sweet spot. Pour the milk into your mug and pair with Dough’s Birthday Cake doughnut. Cheat away!

BUT… Everyone knows you cheat with your eyes first, which is why you should visit Dough on January 26th! We assure you there’s no shortage of beautiful desserts to swoon over. If you’re feeling adventurous, pair Joffrey’s coffee with any of these sweet treats.


Fruity Pebble Doughnut with Cold Brew

Remember that sugary rainbow of Rice Krispies you used to call breakfast? Fruity Pebbles are back and they’re better than ever – mostly because they’re generously sprinkled on top of a house made doughnut from Dough. If you’re craving crunch, this doughnut promises to satisfy. All you need is a Joffrey’s cold brew and your cheat will be effortlessly complete!

Ice cream is an awesome way to check your cheat box, but have you ever tried Dough’s ice cream in a doughnut cone?! If two desserts ever deserved to live in harmony for all of eternity, it’s ice cream and doughnuts. Our favorite part about this treat is that it’s customizable. The doughnut cone is filled with Dough’s soft serve flavor of the week and the rest is completely up to you. Together the pair is admittedly unstoppable, but we love our dessert with a side of Joffrey’s House Blend coffee. It’s the trifecta of champions.

S’mores doughnuts aren’t made for sitting around the campfire, but they’re prime for dunking in a Joffrey’s latte. This treat is smothered in chocolate ganache and topped with a perfectly toasted marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs. Need we say more? Go ahead, use up the calories you’ve been hoarding all month. It’s #NationalCheatDay!

William Dean Chocolates with Joffrey’s Coffee

Have you ever seen the movie Hunger Games? Local chocolatier, William Dean, made a seriously sweet splash in the cinemas after his chocolates were featured in the film. Now they’re a constant source of “oooo’s and ahhhh’s” at Datz’ dessert counter. They are everything you would expect them to be. Thoughtfully hand painted, eclectic and the most delicious chocolates we’ve ever tasted. We love to indulge with a mug of hot Joffrey’s coffee nearby.
