hard coffee drinks

Recommended Posts

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).

: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 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).

      My Irish Coffee  
      Today the children will have to forgive me, but adults also sometimes want a little pleasure. This is a recipe for people who don't have to drive a car or work, i.e. for lucky people or those who can rest at the weekend. Irish coffee is a drink made with strong coffee, Irish Whiskey, whipped cream and brown sugar. It is excellent on cold days. I recommend it after an autumn walk or when the lack of sun really gets you down. Basically, you can spike the coffee with any whiskey, but in my opinion Jameson Irish Whiskey is the best for this drink.

      If you don't like whiskey, instead you can prepare another kind of spiked coffee: French coffee with brandy, Spanish coffee with sherry, or Jamaican coffee with dark rum.
      Ingredients (for 2 drinks)
      300ml of strong, hot coffee
      40ml of Jameson Irish Whiskey
      150ml of 30% sweet cream
      4 teaspoons of coarse brown sugar
      1 teaspoon of caster sugar
      4 drops of vanilla essence
      Put two teaspoons of brown sugar into the bottom of two glasses. Brew some strong black coffee and pour it into the glasses. Warm the whiskey and add it to the coffee. Whisk the sweet cream with the caster sugar and vanilla essence. Put it gently on top so that it doesn't mix with the coffee.

      Enjoy your drink!

      Today I would like to share with you the recipe for swift autumn cookies with French pastry and a sweet ginger-cinnamon-pear stuffing. Served with afternoon coffee they warm us up brilliantly and dispel the foul autumn weather.

      Ingredients (8 cookies)
      1 pack of chilled French pastry
      1 big pear
      1 flat teaspoon of cinnamon
      1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
      2 tablespoons of milk

      Heat the oven up to 190C. Cover a baking sheet with some baking paper.
      Wash the pear, peel and cube it. Add the grated ginger, cinnamon, vanilla sugar and one tablespoon of the brown sugar. Mix them in. Cut 8 circles out of the French pastry. Cut half of every circle into parallel strips. Put the pear stuffing onto the other half of each circle. Roll up the cookies starting from the edges with the stuffing. Put them onto the baking paper and make them into cones. Smooth the top of the pastry with the milk and sprinkle with brown sugar. bake for 20-22 minutes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      I hope this isn't an idiot question.  But I have no idea what the differences are.  Please teach me.

      I had a request for a coffee flavored bon bon.  I am not a coffee fan, so I've never made anything with it.  I've seen two types of recipes - one that infuses the cream with the beans and one that uses brewed coffee.  I'm curious which type of recipe is used by most people here.  If you infuse the cream, are you straining the beans out or are you using a fine enough grind to not create textural problems in the ganache?  If you use brewed coffee, are you reducing the cream by the amount of the coffee liquid on a one to one basis?  Thanks!
