Four Delicious, Coffee-Based Cocktails To Make At Home

If you're looking for a new cocktail to serve at your next dinner party, consider making one of these fun and festive coffee beverages. Perfect for after dinner or alongside dessert, these adult beverages have that smooth coffee flavor, a little kick of caffeine, and of course some liquor to tie it all together.

Caramel Mocha Martini

Serve this shaken martini in a glass that has been rimmed with cocoa. Its bold flavors stand up well to rich desserts like chocolate cake or brownies.


  • 2 ounces brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1/2 ounce caramel-flavored coffee syrup
  • 1 ounce espresso flavored vodka
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup

Fill a shaker with ice. Add all of the ingredients, and shake until moisture forms on the outside of the shaker. Strain into the martini glass, and serve.

Warm Irish Coffee

A twist on classic Irish coffee, this drink is served warm and sweetened with vanilla coffee syrup. It looks stunning when served in a tall glass mug.


  • 6 ounces strong, hot brewed coffee
  • 1/2 ounce vanilla-flavored coffee syrup
  • 1 1/2 ounces of your favorite Irish whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • whipped cream (as a garnish)

Pour the coffee into the mug, and add the remaining ingredients, except for the whipped cream. Stir well, and then top with the whipped cream before serving.

Candy Cane Coffee Cocktail

You can call this one the 4C for short! Served in a low-ball glass, It's the perfect drink to serve around the holidays or any other time you need a soothing, yet invigorating cocktail.


  • 3 ounces brewed coffee, chilled
  • 1 ounce peppermint-flavored vodka
  • 1 ounce chocolate liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce vanilla-flavored coffee syrup
  • crushed candy cane pieces

Moisten the rim of a low-ball glass with a little water. Dip it in the candy cane pieces so that some stick to the edge. Add a small portion of ice to the glass, and then pour in the remaining ingredients. Stir well, and serve.

Big Kid Hot Chocolate

This drink might be called "hot chocolate," but it contains plenty of strong coffee -- and Irish cream.


  • 1 packet of hot chocolate mix
  • 6 ounces strongly brewed coffee
  • 2 ounces Irish cream liqueur
  • whipped cream (as a garnish)

Pour the hot chocolate packet into a mug. Add the hot coffee, and stir until the hot chocolate mix dissolves. Add the Irish cream, and stir to combine. Top with whipped cream, and enjoy!

These are just a few flavors for coffee you can enjoy.

Making Kids Happy

One of my relatives owns a successful restaurant. She understands the importance of making the kids who dine at her eatery happy. Do you plan to open a restaurant in the near future? Consider securing a food supplier who will provide you with kid friendly ingredients on a regular basis. If children don’t like any of the food items on your menu, their parents likely won’t be repeat customers. When placing an order with a reputable food supplier, you might want to buy breaded chicken fingers, hamburger patties, French fries, and cheese. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most common types of foods parents order their kids at restaurants today. Enjoy!
