Whoever said that you can’t turn coffee into a cocktail? While this staple drink might be thought of as a morning pick-me-up, there’s no reason that you can’t make a spectacular after-dinner cocktail simply with a cup of joe or a shot of espresso and a little bit of liqueur.
Check out these three choices, which all go great with coffee to make a simple and tasty drink.
If you like the taste of your black coffee and don’t want to alter it too much, the Mexican liqueur known as Kahlua might be right for you. Adding a splash of this sweet coffee liqueur to your joe won’t change the taste much, but it sure is good.
Almond and coffee go together fantastically, which makes Amaretto another great pick for adding to your coffee to make a cocktail. Don’t overdo it, as the flavor of this liqueur is strong. Just add a few drops, and you’ll be good to go.
Bailey’s Irish Cream
Cream liqueurs are another great choice for coffee, adding an alcoholic splash using a dairy product that is already commonly used with coffee. Bailey’s, which combines milk and sugar with Irish whiskey, is a natural choice.
