7 Delicious Coffee Liqueur Cocktail Recipes

Coffee Liqueur Cocktail Recipes

Liqueurs are available in many flavours and can be used in many ways. When they’re not found inside boozy chocolates, they’re often best as part of a delicious cocktail. Shaking and stirring your own cocktails at home is easy when you have the right ingredients and a few tools to help you along. Liqueurs are incredibly versatile ingredients too, opening up a whole world of incredible cocktails.

Coffee liqueur is one of the most popular options, and it can be used to make various classic and modern cocktails. If you have a bottle of Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur and you’re not sure what to do with it or you’re looking for more ideas, take a look at these top coffee liqueur cocktail recipes.

1. Espresso Martini

The espresso martini is perhaps the first cocktail you think that contains coffee liqueur. It’s a classic for a reason—it’s delicious. For a twist, swap the vodka for gin.

You will need:

50ml Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

50ml freshly-brewed espresso

100ml vodka


How to make it

Chill two martini glasses in the fridge. Place your ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake until your shaker feels cold. Strain into your glasses, and garnish with coffee beans (if you like). If you like it a little sweeter, you can also add simple syrup.

2. White Russian

Another classic cocktail, the white Russian is practically its own character in The Big Lebowski.

You will need:

2 tbsp Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

60ml vodka

1 tbsp cream

How to make it

Mix together your coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream, then pour over ice in a small tumbler. It’s as easy as that! Fancy something a little different? Leave out the cream, mixing together one part coffee liqueur with two parts vodka.

3. Black Russian

For a twist on the white Russian, leave out the cream from a white Russian. Instead, add a maraschino cherry and top up your glass with cold cola.

4. Toasted Almond

For a take on a coffee cocktail that’s similar to a white Russian but has a sweeter flavour, try a toasted almond. It features amaretto and gives you that delicious almond flavour while offering you a creamy cocktail.

You will need:

20ml Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

25ml vodka

25ml amaretto

40ml cream

How to make it

Put your coffee liqueur, vodka, amaretto, and cream into your cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain out into a chilled glass and garnish with a fine dusting of cocoa powder or freshly ground nutmeg.

5. Iced Coffee

If you’re a fan of iced coffee but you want to intensify that coffee flavour and turn it into a sophisticated cocktail, the coffee liqueur is what you need. Adding coffee liqueur creates a boozy iced coffee that’s just as refreshing and perfect for a fun night out (or in).

You will need:

30ml Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

60ml chilled coffee

30ml milk

How to make it

Fill your favourite glass with ice, then pour over the iced coffee. Add your coffee liqueur, then mix your ingredients together. Top it up with milk or cream to finish it off; you can add it to taste to get it exactly how you like it.

6. Widow Maker

There’s a lot more you can do with Jagermeister than just doing shots. It’s also great in a cocktail, including the Widow Maker, which also features delicious coffee liqueur. It’s similar to a vodka martini, and the Jagermeister gives it a herbal undertone.

You will need:

30ml Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

30ml vodka

30ml Jagermeister

 2 drops grenadine

How to make it

Pour your vodka, Jagermeister, coffee liqueur, and grenadine into a cocktail shaker, then fill it with ice. Shake well before straining into a cocktail glass of your choice. You can adjust the grenadine to your taste, but keep the other ingredients in an equal 1:1:1 ratio.

7. Bushwacker

For those who love a creamy cocktail, the Bushwacker is like an alcoholic milkshake that you’re sure to enjoy. It combines flavours of coffee, coconut, and chocolate for a long and tasty cocktail.

You will need:

30ml Steinbeck Coffee Liqueur

30ml dark rum

30ml chocolate liqueur

60ml cream of coconut

60ml of milk

How to make it

In a blender, add all of your ingredients, plus ice. Blend until it’s smooth, then pour into a hurricane glass to serve. If you want to experiment with this cocktail, try a dark chocolate liqueur for a more intense chocolate flavour.

All of these coffee liqueur cocktails offer delectable options for making cocktails at home or behind the bar. If you have the ingredients, they’re all easy to put together.
