Coffee liqueur

A liqueur coffee is a drink that consists of coffee and a shot of liqueur. Usually is served in a liqueur glass, followed several times with cream and sugar. One of the most famous liqueur coffee beverages is known as Irish coffee.

Liqueur coffee beverages are broadly grouped as cocktails as well as a digestive which are directed at aiding the digestive process generally after a meal.

A liqueur is an alcoholic drink with syrup qualities containing additives that sweeten and flavor the beverage. The first coffee liqueur was first produced in the 16th century. Throughout the years, coffee liqueurs have been made with a variety of additives and types of alcohol, although it generally has a rum base with coffee and vanilla flavorings.

Some of its core ingredients include roasted coffee beans and their powder, sugar (white or brown), vanilla syrup, espresso, and alcohol.

The roasted coffee is steeped along with the sugar and other ingredients in the alcohol to produce the coffee liqueur. One of the most popular coffee liqueurs is Kahlua, which has been manufactured in Mexico since 1936.

The Black Russian is a simple, two-part cocktail mixing vodka and Kahlúa, a coffee liqueur made with rum, sugar, and arabica coffee. The drink was invented in the late 1940s by bartender Gustave Tops at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels in honor of Perle Mesta. The name is a simple connection to the ingredients: Kahlúa is black, while vodka is commonly associated with Russia. The dark and mysterious cocktail would have been emblematic of the time, with the Cold War having been just forming. The Black Russian is a cocktail of vodka and coffee liqueur. It contains two parts vodka to one part coffee liqueur, per IBA specified ingredients. Traditionally, the drink is made by pouring the vodka over ice cubes or cracked ice in an old-fashioned glass, followed by the coffee liqueur. A slight variation is to do a 50-50 mix if you want, totally up to you and how you’re feeling and how much you love that coffee flavor. To make it even more delicious, opt for vanilla-flavored vodka for a touch of sweetness. A dash of orange bitters is completely optional per se, but it helps put this simple drink over the top.
