Hot Coffee Cocktail Ingredients
First of all, you need piping hot, fresh coffee. This is a must.
You can use any kind you like from flavored to regular coffee.
I used maple whiskey coffee in the photos but I have also enjoyed this coffee drink with pumpkin spice coffee and plain old beans.
The other ingredients in this drink are Amaretto, Baileys, Kahlua and a squirt of whipped cream at the end.
You can use regular Bailey’s Irish Cream (or a similar Irish cream and regular Kahlua).
Another option is to make your coffee cocktail more festive with peppermint Baileys if you wish.
To make the drink, you need equal parts of every ingredient.
What Is Amaretto?
Amaretto, also known as “Italian coffee liqueur,” is made from coffee beans, sugar, and almond flavor. It has a dark coffee color and smells like coffee mixed with cream.
I used Disaronno for my cocktail which is an almond flavored liqueur made without nuts. This mades this cocktail suitable for anyone with a nut allergy.
How To Make An Amaretto Baileys Kahlua Cocktail
To make this toasted almond cocktail, you will want a whiskey tumbler or similar. I love the triangle glasses that I got from Amazon. They are really heavy and look cool!
Next add each ingredient to the glass one at a time, starting with the coffee. Top with whipped cream.
The sit back and enjoy this creamy coffee cocktail that tastes better than any latte! It’s the perfect drink for sipping by the fire on a winter’s evening.
This alcoholic coffee drink is delicious and creamy. The combination of hot coffee, amaretto, Baileys and Kahlua make for a wonderfully comforting cocktail for the colder months.
