Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t ignore the fact that the festive season is almost upon us. We’ve put together a round up of these delicious, sophisticated coffee cocktails, guaranteed to get any celebration off to a great start, or end the perfect dinner party.
Coco coffee punch
To make one serving, combine 60ml cold iced coffee with 60ml of coffee-flavoured liqueur such as Tia Maria or Kahlua. Mix in 30ml of coconut milk, and add sugar to taste. For a more visual impact, mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some crushed ice, tip into a martini glass and top with coffee beans. The shaking gives the drink a frothy head like a cappuccino.
Coffee almond kick
To make one serving, you’ll need:
- 60ml espresso coffee
- 6 ice cubes
- 1 measure (35ml) Amaretto
- Sugar to taste
- 30ml single cream
Put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously before 10 seconds or so. Strain the cocktail through a sieve into a martini glass, and serve immediately.
- 1 measure (30ml) whisky liqueur, such as Glayva or Drambuie
- 40ml sour cherry juice (also called ‘tart cherry juice’, this is available from health food shops, online and from certain supermarkets)
- 80ml cold coffee
- 60ml original Coca Cola
- 1 teaspoon sugar
Before you start, chill all the liquid ingredients in the fridge for at least an hour. Then, put everything in a large glass (you’ll need it to hold about 300ml), mix it up and tip in the sugar. The sugar will cause the Coca Cola to effervesce (which is why you needed a large glass!) – it looks spectacular, and tastes delicious.
