Irish Cream Coffee
Probably one of the most famous coffee cocktails, the Irish Cream Coffee is a delicious take on the classic coffee. This decadent drink is a crowd favorite, especially on Christmas morning in Ireland! For this cocktail, you'll need a 12 oz. coffee mug. We recommend one from Le Creuset in your favorite color!

One trait of many coffee cocktails is simplicity. Fresh brewed coffee is complex in itself, so there isn't a need to diminish the coffee flavoring with excessive alcohol. You're drinking the coffee cocktail for the coffee part of it, otherwise you should get just a standard cocktail. The Cafe Royal is no exception to simplicity.
- 6 ounces hot J.L. Hufford House Blend Coffee
- 1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
- Shake over ice and strain
- Garnish with whipped cream and cocoa powder

If you've ever added rum to your coffee, chances are you've had Spanish coffee! Traditionally called "carajillo," a Spanish coffee is coffee with hard liquor in it, but most commonly rum. It's a small kick that goes a long way.

- 1/2 oz. rum
- 1/2 oz. vanilla coffee liqueur

An espresso martini is one of the stronger drinks on the list, consisting of only espresso and alcohol. However, if you're an espresso enthusiast then you are sure to love this martini. It's also very easy to make!

- 1 oz. vodka
- 1 1/2 oz. coffee liqueur
- Shake over ice and strain with a Carl Mertens Hampton Strainer
