What do ya get when National AND World 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, of course.
This strong and stirred-down drink comes from the legends at Bethnal Green bar Coupette.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass and stir down over ice before pouring into an ice-filled rocks glass.
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 in a classic White Russian for your fave orange liqueur (ours is Cointreau). Build over ice in a tumbler and devour selfishly.
This smasher was created by Hamish Denny at Spiritland for the Black Cow Vodka crew. It involves a bit of pre-planning, but trust us, it's worth the wait.
To make the cold brew vermouth, combine 100g of ground coffee and 750ml of Cocchi. Leave 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, then garnish with orange peel.
This twist is rich and a little more savoury than the Coladas you might be used to, but believe 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.
When a tequila kick ain't enough - just add coffee.
Salt the rim of a highball glass and combine all ingredients over ice. Top with soda and garnish with grapefruit wedge. BAM. Just the kick you needed.
