Liqueur Coffee

Delicious recipe for a basic liqueur coffee, with plenty of international variations.

Liqueur Coffee

Ingredients

  • 15 ml of your preferred alcohol (see list below)
  • 150 ml hot black coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • whipping cream
  • grated chocolate for topping (optional)

Preparation

  1. Pour chosen alcohol into a cup or heatproof glass. Add the coffee. Stir in the sugar, as this helps keep the cream and coffee layers separate.
  2. Whip the cream until thick but still of a pouring consistency. Gently pour over the back of a teaspoon to float on the black coffee.
For international variations, replace the alcohol as below:
  • French: 30 ml Cointreau
  • Caribbean: 30 ml dark rum
  • German: 15 ml kirsch
  • Irish: 30 ml Irish whisky
  • Italian:?15 ml amaretto
  • Jamaican: 15 ml white rum
  • Mexican: 15 ml Gold Tequila
  • Russian: 30 ml vodka

For a slightly sweeter coffee flavour, also add 1/2 measure of Kahlua or Tia Maria to the above versions.
