Ready to unleash your inner barista-slash-bartender? Here are must-try coffee cocktails you can recreate:

  1. The Timeless Classic: Irish Coffee
    This iconic drink is a true crowd-pleaser. Hot, brewed coffee is mixed with creamy Irish whiskey and brown sugar for a hint of sweetness. For the cherry on top, a dollop of whipped cream is added as a garnish for a touch of decadence. Whether you’re looking for something that can wake you up in the mornings or keep you going for cold nights, this drink is the one for you.
  1. Modern Marvel: Cold Brew Negroni
    If you’re looking for something more adventurous, the Cold Brew Negroni has to be one on the list for its cold-brew-infused Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth, creating a complex and layered flavor profile. Thanks to the cold brew’s chocolate notes, you’ll find pleasant bittersweet flavors that mellow the Negroni’s sharp tastes. A tip: don’t forget to add an orange twist for a final touch.
  1. Summer Sipping: Coffee and Coconut Cooler
    There's nothing like a refreshing and light summer cocktail to beat the heat. Combine hot coffee, coconut sugar, rum, coconut non-dairy beverage, and toasted coconut. What do you get? A cool, vibrant drink perfect for sipping on the poolside or whatever floats your boat. It's all thanks to the distinct coffee and coconut flavors that pair well with rum's bright and nectary taste.
  1. Decadent Delight: Tiramisu Cocktail
    Indulge in the deliciousness of tiramisu all in a boozy beverage. This creamy cocktail blends Irish cream liqueur, hazelnut liqueur, butterscotch schnapps, and espresso, topped with Lady Finger biscuits and chocolate shavings for that classic tiramisu flavor. Think of it as a rich and flavorful drink that's perfect as an after-dinner treat thanks to its dark and rich flavors reminiscent of your favorite classic dessert.
  1. Cozy Comfort: Mexican Coffee
    For a warm and comforting drink on a chilly evening, look no further than Mexican Coffee. This simple yet satisfying cocktail combines coffee-flavored liqueur, tequila, hot coffee, and whipped cream. The tequila adds a subtle kick, while the coffee and whipped cream bring a touch of sweetness, making it another perfect option for a classic nightcap.
