I’ve enjoyed my share of coffee liqueurs but it wasn’t until recently when I found out about some of these that I am am going to share with you. If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I like to try many things and if it involves coffee, count me in.
What is Coffee Liqueur
A beverage that consists of coffee and a shot of liqueur. Coffee liqueur is made by adding coffee flavors and sugar to a distilled spirit. These are usually paired with either vodka, rum, or brandy.
Mostly classified as cocktails some coffee liqueur is also considered to be a digestif and served after a meal.
One of the most popular liqueur coffee beverage is commonly known as Irish Coffee and another example that you may of heard before would be Kahlua which is a rum that is infused with arabica coffee beans, sugar, and vanilla.
