I can’t imagine a better way to end my week of coffee topics than with the perfect coffee cocktail. There are so many tantalizing ways to booze up your coffee, you could have a different concoction every week for a year without repeating the same one twice. Although I love hot coffee cocktails, it’s way too hot today for one – when is the cold weather going to come already? Thankfully, I had some cold brew coffee ready to go. I have a bit of a sweet tooth tonight (what else is new) and am hankering for a Mounds candy bar. Remember those commercials from the 80’s for Mounds and Almond Joy? “Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don’t!” Chocolate and coconut (plus or minus the almonds) – yum! I LOVE the combination of chocolate and coconut, but it’s missing one thing – COFFEE! Here is my coffee cocktail version of a Mounds candy bar.
Ingredients (makes two generously proportioned cocktails)
2 oz coconut rum
1 oz Kahlua
1 oz vanilla simple syrup
12 oz cold brew coffee (or hot brewed coffee that has cooled off)
Cocoa (for rimming the martini glass)
