Different coffee drinks.
Posted 09 March 2002 - 08:20 AM
Looking up coffee drink recipes on the internet yields an overwhelming number of recipes, leaving me with no idea where to begin. Does anybody out there have a favorite novelty coffee drink? The more original, the better (presuming it's still delicious, of course). Keep in mind, please, that our store isn't licensed to sell hard liquor. That's probably a good thing, considering how much I love throwing that stuff in my coffee.

Instead of adding ingredients--I'd be alot happier to get a good to very good espresso more often--rather than something over-extracted, underextracted or crema-less.
I'd rather have the sweet novelties--the cream, the chocolate, the infusions and syrups--in dessert.
The simple pleasure of an espresso or machiatto is surprisingly hard to find after a meal.

The idea of finding one that tasted delicious by itself makes me almost wanna go on a quest.

In a pony glass add 11/2 oz. of strong black coffee 1/2 an oz. of a flavored brandy (grand mariner, creme de cocoa, frangelico, creme de cassis, creme de almond, etc.) and top with a complimentary flavored whipped cream. I like to use the coffee syrups (Monin) to flavor the whipped cream. One of my favorite combinations is frangelico in the coffee and chocolate flavored whipped cream (for chocolate use cocoa powder instead of syrup).
