I think i woudl make it easy on yourself and just do an irish coffee

  • six ounces of hot, fresh brewed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon of brown sugar for sweetness
  • 1 ½ ounces of your favorite Irish whiskey
  • heavy cream

Its also really good with some baileys if you can pick some up.

Amaretto Coffee is lush!  Same as you would make an Irish coffee, and you could serve with amaretto biscuits.  One tip though, when making a coffee with alcohol, I suggest you warm up the alcohol ever so slightly, for some reason this helps the cream sit tidier on top of the coffee.

Amaretto, rum, hot chocolate (coffee) and whipped cream…delicious!

I don’t know if this will help but when I have people over for stuff like that and I know they don’t mind a sweet coffee, I add my secret weapon – a dash of maple syrup. It may sound weird at first but it’s pretty great.

Affrogato!  You do a scoop of ice creame or sugar sweetened marscapone, a couple of thin ginger cookies from Trader Joe’s, and drizzle the espresso over it.  Chocolate syrup and whipped cream optional. 


Soooo tasty!

If you’re into tea as well, Absolut Peach vodka in unsweetened green tea is pretty freaking awesome. I like the Absolut Peach even more than peach schnopps (and it’s obviously got more of a kick to it!

Kahlua is pretty much the “base” for most specialty coffees, but you can do some without it

you can do Sambuca with coffee… add whip cream and cherry, and sugar rim

you can do a Blueberry Tea, which is Ameretto and Grand Marnier, add steeped regular tea, and garnish with an orange. 

You can serve (white)Sambuca with 3 whole coffee beans(a lot of people like this after dinner)

You can do a Monte Cristo – Kahlua, Grand Marnier, coffee (top with whip cream and cherry)

You can do just Ameretto and coffee

Irish Coffee – Irish Whiskey, coffee
