Coffeetails Anyone?

Who doesn’t love coffee? High quality coffee tastes great and caffeine can be a life-saver, especially during early mornings.. While coffee is wonderful, cocktails are pretty great too. Why should you have to choose one or the other? Mix them together, and your taste buds will celebrate. We’ve given you recipes for Joffrey’s coffee cocktails recipes before, but you can never get enough of something this good, right? With that in mind, here are some new and exciting coffee cocktails that you can make with any Joffrey’s coffee.

Cold Coffee Cocktails

Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking

The Alive and Kicking will keep you just that: alive and kicking! With the variety of flavors in this fun coffee cocktail, your mouth will have the experience of a lifetime! The caffeine will give

you a little boost of energy, and a tasty coffee flavor, while the demerara will add just the right amount of sweetness.. Combined with the slightly sugary pick-me-up, you’ll enjoy herbs, spices, and aroma of the fernet, complimented by  the pleasant warmth of  Scotch. To make the drink sweeter, try one of our sweeter flavored coffees (like Bananas Foster, Biscoffe Crumble, or Caramel Mudslide). To give it a more earthy taste, try our Costa Rica, Ethiopian, or Sumatra.

What to Buy

  • 1 Tablespoon demerara sugar
  • 4  Strong cold-brew coffee
  • 4  Fernet (Contratto would be best)
  • 3  Amaro (Barolo Chinato would be best)
  • 3  Compass Box Whisky Co. Orangerie or Grand Marnier
  • 4 orange twists (for serving)

How to Make

First, you’ll have to make the demerara simple syrup. This is easy. Just combine sugar and 1 tbsp. of hot water in a jar, cover the jar, and shake it until the sugar is dissolved completely. Then, chill the jar until it’s cold.

Now, it’s time to make the cocktail! For one cocktail, combine 1 oz. coffee, 1 oz. fernet, ¾ oz. amaro, ¾ oz. Scotch, and ¼ oz. demerara simple syrup, and ice in a cocktail shaker, and shake shake shake! Keep shaking until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain into a glass, garnish with an orange twist, and begin sipping your delightful drink!

 

Dublin Iced Coffee

We’ve all heard the expression “the luck of the Irish.” Well, if you’ve had a chance to dry a Dublin Iced Coffee, you’re in luck, Irish or not! The mixture of coffee, stout, Irish whiskey, syrup, and heavy cream make a perfect symphony of caffeine, dessert, and deliciousness!

What to Buy

  • 2 strong cold-brew coffee
  • 2 stout (such as AleSmith Speedway or Guinness)
  • 1½ Irish whiskey
  • ¾ simple syrup
  • 1/2ounce heavy cream
  • Freshly grated cinnamon stick (for serving)

How to Make

Now, for the fun part: mix the coffee, stout, whiskey, and simple syrup in a highball glass, and add ice. Gently pour the cream into the glass, so it gradually sinks into the coffee and creates a swirling kaleidoscope of browns, mochas, creams and whites in your glass! For the finishing touch, sprinkle the drink with cinnamon and enjoy!

 

Hot Coffee Cocktails

Cafe Don Juan

The Café Don Juan is strong, dark, and handsome! If you like a drink with some real body and a tinge of sweetness, this is the cocktail for you. The dark rum, Kahlua, hot coffee, chocolate and whipped cream will always leave you wanting more!

What to Buy

  • 3/4 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. Kahlua coffee liqueur
  • 5 oz. hot black coffee
  • 1 1/2 oz. whipped cream
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 Irish coffee cup
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp. of grated chocolate or chocolate syrup

The first step is rimming your cup with lemon juice and sugar. Then, pour coffee and liquors into the cup in any order you want, and add more sugar to sweeten to taste. Then, add the whipped cream to the top of the drink and sprinkle with grated chocolate. Float the cream on top, sprinkle with grated chocolate or chocolate syrup, and a cookie, and serve.

Amaretto Coffee

This Amaretto Creme has Chocolate in it Too!

This Amaretto Creme has Chocolate in it Too!

If you love almond flavored desserts, here’s your chance to drink one! While we’re all coffee-lovers here, the coffee is just a small part of this beautiful beverage!  The amaretto liqueur,

whipped cream, and sliced almonds mix and mingle to create something that tastes like…well…a liquid cake (mmm…heavenly)! Adding black coffee to the mix brings the drink back down to earth adding body and acidity. The result: a well-balanced beautiful taste!

What to Buy

  • 1 cup of hot coffee
  • 1 1/2 shots Amaretto liqueur
  • 1/4 cup lightly whipped cream
  • 1/2 tbsp. toasted, sliced almonds
  • 1 tsp. of cinnamon

How to Make

Pour hot coffee into a preheated brandy snifter or a tall coffee glass. Add the liqueur, and stir. Add whipped cream, top it off with shaved almonds and cinnamon, and drink slowly to savor every sip!

Mix it Up and Get Creative!

The drinks above are ones you’ll definitely enjoy, and the recipes will help if you’re a coffee cocktail novice. In the long run though…nobody needs to follow a recipe to enjoy a coffee cocktail. Use some of our recipes as a starting point and add your own flair. For instance, how would an Amaretto Coffee taste with chocolate in it? How would a Dublin Iced Coffee taste with Amaretto Liqueur? What about a cold version of the Café Don Juan (instead of hot)? You could also experiment with the same recipes, but change the coffee flavors to play with the taste. We have many flavored coffees to choose from! You get the idea! As long as the flavors complement each other, feel free to let your creativity run wild!
