Yep, sometimes you gotta go with the double whammy: alcohol and caffeine. Which, I have to guess, doesn’t sound too bad to you, right?

It sure doesn’t for me.

That’s why I’ve gathered the top ten alcoholic coffee drinks to try:

  1. Espresso Martini: Honestly, I should just stop right here. I discovered these while living in Australia, and my life has never been the same. Shake 1 ounce of espresso and vodka with 1.5 ounces of Kahlua and strain into a martini glass, and you’re life will be forever changed too.
  2. The Truffle: Similar to the espresso martini, shake 1 ounce of vodka and Frangelico with 3/4 ounce of fresh espresso with ice, then strain into a glass and enjoy!
  3. Cafe Royal: Add 1.5 ounces of Patron XO Coffee Liqueur and 1.5 ounces of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur to your cup of coffee, top with whipped cream and sit back and relax.
  4. Black Russian: 1.5 ounces of vodka with 1/2 ounce of coffee liqueur… This one isn’t for the faint-hearted.
  5.  B52: Try this layered shot of 1 part coffee liqueur, 1 part orange cognac and 1 part Irish cream. It’ll be the smoothest shot you’ll ever take!
  6. Amaretto Coffee: It’s exactly what it sounds like: 1 cup of coffee and 1 1/2 shots of Amaretto (think of it as alcoholic almond flavouring!).
  7. White Russian: See Black Russian, and add cream (still not for the faint-hearted).
  8. Irish Car Bomb: Drop a shot of Irish whiskey and coffee liqueur into a pint of stout beer – clearly, Guinness should be your go-to for that one.
