    Hot Coffee Cocktail Recipes 

    Have you ever tried making any coffee cocktails at home? It’s easier than you think! Coffee cocktails are a great way of marrying coffee and some of your favorite liquors.

    Brew coffee the way you usually do. Then with a few tools (like a shot glass or jigger), some extra ingredients (whipped cream, flavored syrups like chocolate or caramel), and your favorite spirits, you’ll be able to make some of these recipes in no time.

    Feel free to garnish as you like – with sprinkles, nuts, Maraschino cherries, cocoa or vanilla powder.
