How to make Liqueur Coffee

Hands up who doesn't like a nice coffee liqueur drink at the end of a special dinner? 

Alcohol with coffee is such a good match. The perfect after-dinner drink at Christmas, thanksgiving or of course, at New Year, and is sometimes called floater coffee.

I used Cognac so this is a French coffee liqueur but other liqueur coffees are as follows.

  • Irish coffee - Irish whiskey
  • Italian coffee - Grappa or amaretto
  • Caribbean coffee - Rum (of course)! or Tia Maria

How do you make cream float on top of coffee?

Well, it's actually really easy; follow my recipe for success.

Aldi has some seriously good-priced Wines, Beers and Spirits. Exclusive to Aldi and at the time of writing this Chevalier Cognac is a great price at just £15.99 for a 70cl bottle.

Top Tips for success!

  • Don't forget to put a teaspoon in the glass before pouring in the hot water or it will crack! 😐
  • Always use double (heavy) cream not single as it will split.
  • Try not to leave out the sugar, even if you don’t usually have sugar in your coffee since that's what helps to keep the cream from sinking.
  • Remember not to stir in the cream as the whole point is to sip the coffee through the floating cream.
