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!

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 !

The Negroni template is a template I really like and enjoy to experiment with in all kinds of combinations. In this post I have picked three negroni cocktails with different expressions and visual appearances, of this well known classic cocktail. I have served all three negronis in my squared glass.
I love to serve Negroni in my square glass. I get a lot of questions about this particular square glass, I bought in a second-hand store close to where I live. I often visit second-hand stores to find new glassware and bar gear. Second-hand is good for the global environment and they often supports a good cause.
My local second-hand store fight against poverty and support the vulnerable people in Asia, Africa, Middle East & Denmark. By shopping locally, I found the most popular and liked glass in my collection, and supported a good cause – What’s not to like?
