If you are anything like me then coffee has been the secret sauce that got you through 2016. So let’s not abandon our faithful staple this festive season, instead let’s dress it up for a party.
A coffee cocktail is something a little different from the usual drink offerings. Sophisticated and packing a punch, a well-made coffee cocktail will give you the pick-me-up you need to flutter around the Christmas party like a social butterfly. Here are ten of my favorites, from classics to contemporary recipes.
1. Caffe Shakerato
A short and sweet drink served in a small tumbler with a frothy top. Take 2 parts cold-brew coffee with 1 part syrup of your choice. Shake with ice and strain into tumbler. I recommend trying this with chocolate syrup for a mocha flavor. Or how about chocolate orange for a festive twist?
