The Coffee Nudge is a fantastic cold-weather drink, but it can be enjoyed year-round. It makes use of both coffee and chocolate flavored liqueurs combined with real coffee to provide a nice balance of pick-me-up and take-the-edge-off.
The real stand-out ingredient here is the Brandy, which brings a little flavorful kick and sets this apart from your standard coffee/chocolate drinks.
Coffee Nudge Recipe
A coffee nudge combines the warmth of coffee and liquor in a delicious after-dinner drink.
- 3/4 oz Creme de Cacao
- 3/4 oz Coffee liqueur (eg. Kahlua)
- 1/2 oz Brandy
- 6 oz Coffee hot brewed
- 1.5 oz whipped cream
How to Make
Combine creme de cacao, coffee liqueur and brandy in an irish coffee cup
Slowly pour hot brewed coffee
Top with whipped cream
The coffee nudge can be made all year-round, but the combined effects of warm coffee and alcohol make it ideal for colder weather. This isn’t quite a winter holiday drink, making it more suitable for chilly autumn days.
