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!

Old fashioned cocktail – on the IBA official cocktails list, under the category “The unforgettables”. It’s a template I enjoy expirimenting with, and is orignally made with whiskey or bourbon. You can use any type of base spirit of choice and sweetener or modifyer, which will give you endless choice, so you get the flavour profile you like and prefer.
For my Old fashioned recipes I prefer to use 60 ml / 6 cl of spirit to 10 – 15 ml / 1 – 1,5 cl of modifyer / sweetener and a few drops of bitters, stirred over ice to perfectly diluted.
In this post I have displayed five different Old fashioned styled serves, to show that there are many ways to make an Old fashioned.
