Need to kick things up a little ? I’m sure these coffee cocktails will do the trick.

Coffee cocktails is much more than the classic Irish coffee or espresso martini, which I think must be the most well known coffee cocktails, but they also are for a reason, its really deilicious cocktails.

I want to show that there is much more to sipping coffee in drinks than making the classics, and therefore I have made four drinks with coffee which shows you can go in many different directions using coffee to kick up your sips with a little caffeine.

If you like me, love a good coffee and also cocktails. Then I’m sure you’ll love these cocktails with the use of coffee.

Cheers & enjoy!

Blue cocktails are fun vibrant and eye catching. These funky and often fruity cocktails are a perfect way to get your summer blues started.

I love experimenting with the visuals, to make eye catching cocktails, and blue cocktails are some of my favorites. They always seem to draw peoples attention, make them curious and has a “wow” effect.

If you want to make mesmerizing blue cocktails, a good way to start is to aquire a bottle of curacao blue, this will turn your cocktail into a beautiful blue serve, and works perfectly well as a substitute for cointreau or orange liqueur in your tropical and fruity blue drinks, to make them sparkle like the deep blue salty sea water.

In this post I want to display two vibrant, fun and delicious blue cocktails I have made, which I served “slushed ice style”. Both are perfect cocktails to enjoy on the pation in the summer, or just when you want a ice cold, delicious and fruity sip. Try them out – you won’t regret it.

Do you have any favorite, funky, fun and fruity blue sips you want to share with me ? tell me about it in the comments below.

Cheers & enjoy !

Drinks on fire – yes these flaming cocktails will light you up.

There is something intriguing about fire, wether its a campfire or in a chimney. Fire can wake a feeling in all of us. But today I want to talk about drinks on fire or cocktails where you get to play a little with fire.

Lighting a match and expressing citrus oils through the fire over your cocktails or torching fruits, herbs or ganishes will instantly wake your senses, and give a new aspect to your sipping experience. The smell or taste will give a new dimension to your drink that you would have been left without, and I’m sure you will have the attention of the people around you, when you serve these drinks.

Below you’ll find five cocktails I’ve made using fire, and I hope that these will inspire you to make your own “drinks on fire”.

Have you tried to make a drink using fire ? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.

Be careful when you use fire in the making of cocktails. Be in control of what is happening, be aware, take care and remember safety first.

Cheers & enjoy !
