Double Jump Brews Komala Coffee & Roserade Tea

Welcome to another exciting installment of Double Jump Bakes! Except this time we’re brewing, not baking.

Previously we’ve decorated Pokemon sugar cookies and baked galaxy cupcakes in honor of Star Fox. We’re going back to our Pokemon roots this time with some Komala Coffee and Roserade Tea.

Both of these drinks are featured in the Pokemon Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon games set in Alola. They’re specialized drinks that can be bought and enjoyed at the Pokemon Center Cafes. We discovered a talented and fun Tumblr blog dedicated to recreating video game food called Jammy Cooks, where two of his blog posts detail how to make the cream for the Komala Coffee and the syrup for Roserade Tea.

The cream and syrup were fairly simple to make. The main ingredient for the the cream was blueberry juice, while the syrup was mostly lemon and sugar with a bit of ginger.

We created the cream and syrup and let them chill overnight in the fridge to accompany our iced coffee and iced hibiscus tea for the next day.

While Jammy made his own hibiscus tea using dried hibiscus and the Pokemon move “Sunny Day,” we cheated a little and just used hibiscus tea bags.

Taste testing the drinks went fairly well — at least, Kris liked them, especially the tea syrup. She’s the tea drinker between the sisters and enjoys how sweet it was. The cream for the coffee wasn’t too bad either, with it also being a little sweet, but the blueberry taste wasn’t as evident in our mixture. Rachel, the coffee-lover, was lukewarm with the taste due to it being a sweeter cream than her normal cream.

Overall, the drinks were a success, despite them not being Rachel’s cup of… tea (yes, I went there). Kris enjoys the tea, and our mother didn’t find them that bad either, haha!
