5 Drink Recipes For Coffee Flavored Whiskey

Coffee whiskey has a uniquely delicious flavor that can add a much-welcomed twist to your favorite drinks or inspire new drinks. Make the most of your coffee-flavored whiskey by getting the other ingredients you'll need to make a great drink. Here are 5 drink recipes for coffee-flavored whiskey.

1. Coffee-Flavored Old Fashioned 

  • Coffee Whiskey - 1 ½ ounces 
  • Bourbon - ¾ ounce
  • Vanilla Bitters - 2 dashes
  • Vanilla stick 

This drink is a more hearty and flavorful take on the classic old-fashioned that allows you to enjoy the flavor of your whiskey unmarred by multiple other dominating flavors and ingredients. Enjoy it with breakfast during vacation or as an after-dinner drink.

2. Coffee-Flavored Whiskey White Russian

  • coffee whiskey - 1.5 ounces
  • Kahlua - 1.5 ounces
  • milk or heavy cream - 3 ounces

Substitute the vodka in a traditional white Russian for coffee-flavored whiskey to create a simple yet satisfying beverage that everyone is sure to love. Combine espresso or coffee with the milk to add a little pep to your step.

3. Revolver Cocktail

  • coffee whiskey - 1 ounce
  • bourbon - 1 ounce
  • orange bitters - 2 dashes
  • orange peel garnish

This sophisticated cocktail combines two flavorful liquors into one tasty drink that proves that even coffee whiskey can be enhanced by other flavors. 

4. Irish Coffee

  • coffee whiskey -  2 ounces
  • espresso - 1 ounce
  • brown sugar - 1 tablespoon
  • whipped cream topping
  • cinnamon garnish

This is an original Irish coffee using coffee whiskey instead of unflavored whiskey. The brown sugar and whipped cream turn the bitter flavor of coffee into a creamy sweet indulgence. If you like your coffee bitter as it is, reduce the amount of brown sugar and whipped cream you put in the drink. 

5. Jazzed Up

  • coffee whiskey - 1.5 oz
  • Grand Marnier - .5 oz
  • Amaro - .5 oz
  • cold brew - 1 oz
  • demerara syrup - .5 oz
  • coffee beans (garnish)

This drink uses coffee whiskey as the base for a concoction of delicious flavors. You won't taste the coffee whiskey as distinctly as with some of the other drinks, because it's one of many strong ingredients. Mix ingredients before straining the drink into a brandy snifter. 

You won't go wrong buying coffee whiskey with all of the options available to you. You simply need to decide which recipe best suits the occasion. Everyone will want one of your drinks, so get enough for two!
