Another great fruit that is in season that we should take advantage of is the Kiwi.

Strawberry Kiwi Marini

More Coffee Cocktail Classics

I always like to preheat my mugs before I build my coffee cocktail.

Aspen Coffee

  • 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz. Frangelico
  • 1/2 oz. Kahlua
  • Fill with Coffee and top with whip cream

Coffee Royal

  • 3/4 oz. Baileys
  • 3/4 oz. Kahlua
  • Fill with Coffee and top with whip cream.

B-52 Coffee

  • 1/2 oz. Kahlua
  • 1/2 oz. Baileys
  • 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
  • Fill with Coffee and top with whip cream.

To add your own twist to your coffee drink try using different flavors from the Baileys brand (Original, Mint Chocolate, Crème Caramel, Coffee, Hazelnut, Biscotti) and even try different whip cream flavors from Reddi-Whip.
