Roasty Toasty Coffee Cocktails

Roasty Toasty Coffee Cocktails

Coffee cocktails have come a long way since the 1940s/50’s Irish Coffee and 1960’s White Russian (made famous by The Big Lebowski), and the Espresso Martini of the 1980s/90’s. This is in part to the evolution of coffee culture itself. From first-wave drip coffee, to Starbucks, to today’s craft “third-wave” coffee and the canned cold brew trend. These different styles of coffee have given us the ability to mix them into cocktails never before possible, but certainly delicious.

Thankfully, you don’t need to work at a bar or coffee shop to add the rocket fuel to your Friday fun. We’ve put together a list of our favorite ways to get roasty toasty and keep your night (or morning?) fueled up for fun.
