What dya get when National AND International Coffee Day fall in the same week, aside from the caffeine shakes? The perfect excuse to sh-sh-shake up these epic coffee-based cocktails.
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir down over ice before pouring into an ice filled rocks glass. Don't have all the ingredients kickin' about in your home bar? No drama. You'll find it on the legendary new menu at Coupette, so swing by the Bethnal Green bar & let the pros do their thing.
The Dude might be a purist when it comes to the White Russian, but we've always been a bit more partial to experimentation. This little tinkering with the usual is an epic mix of coffee, chocolate orange and rich Jersey cream.
Simply swap out the vodka from a classic White Russian for your fave orange liqueur (ours is Cointreau). Build over ice in a tumbler glass and devour selfishly.
This smasher was created by Hamish Denny at Spiritland for the Black Cow crew, and involves a bit of pre-planning - but trust us, it's worth the wait.
To make the cold brew vermouth, put 100g of ground coffee in 750ml of Cocchi. Leave that to infuse overnight in the fridge. Strain out the coffee grounds. Now you've got yourself enough to keep you going for a while, pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass, fill with cubed ice, stir, and strain into a rock glass, garnish with orange peel.
This twist is rich and a little more savoury than the Coladas you might be used to, but trust us when we say this one is a game-changer.
Shake all your ingredients in a cocktail shaker and garnish with coffee beans. Paradise = found.
