hard coffee drinks

29 posts in this topic

Nothing warms me up in the winter like a cup of coffee w/ a shot of bourbon, or sometimes Irish whiskey. My wife likes it with 1/2 shot of Baileys and 1/2 shot of Kahlua

Ooooh yes. I like Frangelico, or Amaretto. hmmm - do you sense a nut theme?

and a couple of squares of Green & Black's Maya Gold chocolate goes very well alongside (dark chocolate with orange, cinammon and nutmeg).

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

:wub:

I've got oodles of coffee drinks. I really love them. I think most often I'll add Tia or Kahlua, Bailey's and Frangelico.

I love Tuaca too.

Depends on mood. Sometimes I enjoy something a bit more spicy and go with a Calypso Coffee (Captain, Kahlua and coffee).

edited to add: Hot tea too!!! I love adding Grandma and Amaretto. Dreamy.

Oh boy, I love coffee drinks. When you live this far north you have to keep warm and they are great for that.

I love a lot of the ones already mentioned, especially Irish Whiskey with real whip cream, but also just adore coffee with Sambuca. I'm not usually an anise/licorice fan, but wow, there is something about that combination that sends me.

I like rum or cognac with, but not in, coffee.

I know this will come as a shock to everyone, but I like to add grappa. Not that ultra-modern clean stuff like Nonino, but good strong old fashioned stuff.

Caffe correcto - as it is called in in Italy - warms up everthing.

If I was still unwise enough to drink alcohol (there's a good reason why I'm a hard core espresso and coffee drinker :cool: ) ..... I'd either be adding Tia Maria to my black coffee or better yet, drinking B&B from a snifter with black coffee on the side in between sips.

Definitely frangelico or grappa.

But, they are even better in coffee ice cream in the blazing Nebraska and Texas summers that I continually find myself in!

Akvavit - preferably Aalborg.

Nope, akvavit. It's often (usually?) flavored with caraway. I bought a bottle in Denmark once. Definitely an acquired taste.

Akvavit (also spelled as Aquavit) is similar to vodka and is distilled in Denmark. It is made from grain or potatoes and flavoured with caraway seeds.

If you like caraway, you'll like akvavit. But you have to like caraway a lot.

My brother's "Special Coffee, " prepared the minute he enters a holiday, or weekend or weekday kitchen, no matter the time of day. :blink:

Coffee, big slug scotch, small slug Sambuca, whipped cream from a can. It's actually pretty good.

I'm a big fan of bourbon or Irish whisky in my coffee.

On a related note (it will be eventually), my aunt and now my mother-in-law like to have their coffee "fluffed." Aunt Kristie picked up one of those milk frothers so you can whip up your milk or cream for your coffee. Well, when my wife and I visited Kristie up in Canada she was showing off her "fluffer" and of course we giggled like little school girls at the other connotation. Since my wife likes milk/cream in her coffee, she would take the fluffed milk. I took the joke even farther and said "no, I would not like my coffee fluffed, however I would like some Man fluff in mine." "What?" "Irish whisky please!"

edit: Aunt Kristie now knows the alternate meaning of fluffer.

Whisk(e)y of almost any sort other than single malt (both because it's usually a waste and because I don't like my coffee to taste peaty).
