Road trip to Pawhuska Oklahoma, The Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile, and The Spicy Cowgirl Coffee
The road trip
We got up bright and early, loaded up a huge passenger van with our family, 2 other families, a few mother-in-laws, and left Missouri just as the sun was rising.
It was a truly glorious day.
The sun was shining for the first time in forever.
Oklahoma had been hit with some serious flooding so when when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the flooding had kept the crowd at bay so were able to get right into the Mercantile and start exploring.
The Pioneer Woman Mercantile
The old Mercantile building is old and majestic, reminiscent of another time. It has been beautifully restored to its former glory.
Firstly, I made a beeline for the cafe that was on the 2nd floor of the historic building in downtown Pawhuska.
The smell that hits you when you walk up the grand staircase is the best. Coffee beans and baked goods. Hmmm…
I grabbed several goodies (hardest decision ever) to take home with me and a few gluten-free bakery items (such as a delicious GF pound cake) to give to friends.
Secondly, I shopped around the mercantile looking at all of the merchandise.
Thirdly, we ate at the Mercantile Deli. So yummy! I highly recommend it.
The Spicy Cowgirl
Now for the coffee.
The selection was vast and I stood there for at least 5 minutes trying to decide, but ultimately I decided “when in Rome”…The Spicy Cowgirl it was.
This coffee is everything a dessert coffee should be.
Sweet, creamy, and chocolaty with a pleasant spicy kick.
It is still my favorite coffee to date.
That trip to Pawhuska was so memorable. We went to see the lodge with it’s gorgeous view and my girls stood at the HUGE island and pretended to cook for the camera.
I want that island in my home.
The second we were back in the van and on our way home, I looked up the recipe which was posted on Food Network’s website.
This recipe is for a single serving but you will have LOTS of cold brew coffee and chili simple syrup left over so you can make it time and time again.

- In a medium bowl, whip the cream and the vanilla syrup until light and creamy and set aside.
- In a large coffee mug combine the cold brew coffee, milk, chile syrup, and chocolate sauce.
- Stir until combined (you can also put this into a cocktail shaker and shake until foamy).
