This caffeinated cocktail recipe comes to us from Death Wish Coffee. We recently featured their potent coffee beans and we just might be addicted to their high octane java. (Death Wish claims their coffee is the strongest in the world. And they back it up with a money back guarantee.)
We wouldn’t wish death on any of you, we think their version of a coffee cocktail is too decadent to pass up. We love the idea of a caffeine-spiked cocktail as a wake up call on a cold winter night.
Because coffee’s an aphrodisiac
What’s so right about this wicked brew? Well for starters, you know coffee is an aphrodisiac. We’ve featured it many times before, highlighting some of it’s most intriguing attributes. Most importantly, when it comes to cocktail hour, it helps elevate mood as well as gives the body a surge of energy to get through the rest of the day or perhaps a night to remember. And with this caffeinated cocktail’s sexy combination of spirits and the aphrodisiac of coffee, we think Death Wish Coffee may have struck a note that is both dangerous and sensual–now that’s a party in our book!
Your new wintertime cocktail
This drink isn’t a particularly innovative mixture. In fact, you’ve probably experimented with at least a couple of these flavors together before. But what it lacks in inventiveness, it makes up for in vibrancy and potency.
With its tried and true flavor combination, this caffeinated cocktail strikes just the right balance of richness, sweetness and that bitter bite of great coffee. It’s potent not only for the caffeine but also the sheer amount of liquor in one serving. To say this is a warming drink would be an understatement.
Topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a pinch of aphrodisiac cinnamon, it’s wintertime comfort food at its finest–not to mention sexiest.
