Adult coffee drinks combine the wonderful flavors of your favorite coffee with garnishes and fine liquors to make an exquisite collection of end of day toddies. Here are a few of our favorites.
2 ½ cups of freshly brewed coffee
½ cup of heavy creamer
½ cup of Kahlua
¼ cup of your favorite vodka
Whipped heavy cream
First, brew half a pot of your favorite coffee. In a saucepan stir together the coffee, cream, the Kahlua and the vodka over a medium heat. Heat until hot, but before boiling. Separate into cups and garnish as desired.
A double shot of espresso (about 2 ounces) heated to room temperature
1 ounce of your preferred bourbon or rye whiskey

Combine the espresso, bourbon, simple syrup and bitters in a shaker and fill with ice. Sir with a bar spoon for 30 seconds and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Twist the lemon peel over the drink and run the remainder around the rim of the glass. Garnish with the peel and enjoy.
