Release your festive spirit with our coffee cocktails

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, tra la la la……it’s only six weeks until Christmas, and we’re getting in the mood with these festive coffee cocktails. Don’t forget to order your coffee beans from us in plenty of time to make sure your Christmas (and that of your customers) goes with a swing.

Alcoholic cappuccino

Lovely creamy indulgent cappuccino – but with a decidedly adult twist. Here’s what you need:

  • Cream liqueur
  • 100ml whipping cream
  • Freshly brewed strong black coffee
  • Chocolate shavings or powder

You’ll also need a heatproof measuring jug, a heatproof glass per person and a spoon.

Whip the cream until it stands up in soft peaks, and set aside. Heat the measuring jug by filling it with hot water then emptying it. Brew your favourite coffee by your preferred method, and for each person, measure out 120ml and pour it into a heatproof glass. Add 50ml of cream liqueur, and mix thoroughly. Top with a spoon of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate. Serve with a mince pie on the side.

Espresso martini

With the new James Bond film hitting our screens, here’s our take on 007’s favourite drink.

You’ll need:

  • 25ml gin
  • 25ml cream liqueur
  • 25ml freshly brewed coffee, cold
  • teaspoon of sugar per person
  • coffee bean, to serve

If you want to do things properly, you’ll also need a martini glass, a cocktail shaker, some ice cubes and a sports car…

Fill the cocktail shaker with the ice, and add the other ingredients except the coffee bean. Shake everything together, pour into the glass and garnish with the bean. Lean back and enjoy after you’ve saved the world.
