Alcohol itself is a pleasure. But if you’re looking for a way to make it even better, adding a pinch of coffee might be your best bet. So why not exchange your glasses of wine for espresso-infused cocktails? Coffee and schnapps are the perfect combinations. Two of everyone’s favorite drinks, coffee, and cocktails, come together in these five fortified alcoholic coffee drinks. Make note, coffee lovers!
1. Expresso Martini
This chilled cocktail combines just three simple ingredients: espresso, coffee liqueur, and simple syrup. Expresso martini is the drink of choice and the classic Kahlua cocktail. It is perfect as an after-dinner drink or when you’re out with friends for a night out.
2. Mexican Coffee Cocktail
Mexican coffee cocktails can be made with just three ingredients. The combination of tequila, Kahlua, melted vanilla ice cream, and rich dark roast. It will be ready while your coffee is brewing. No need to shake or stir. Enjoy it as it is or mix it with your favorite flavors and toppings.
3. Irish Iced Coffee
Irish iced coffee is one of the most popular coffee cocktails. A creamy, caffeinated formula that awakens you and your taste buds. You can certainly serve this boozy brunch favorite over regular ice or prefer to freeze the coffee.
4. Cold Brew Bourbon Cocktail
Chilled coffee cocktails are the perfect refreshment for the crowd to soak up the sun. Because bourbon has a sweeter flavor, it cuts the acidity and bitterness, making it a good choice for coffee cocktails. Also, adding a shot of triple sec to the mix gives it a slightly citrusy note.
5. Mocha Mezcal Dessert Cocktail
Smoky mezcal, creamy coconut milk, and a hint of spice. Unlike tequila, which tastes sweet, mezcal has a much stronger, almost smoky taste. Refer to this recipe to make Mocha Mezcal Dessert Cocktail.
