For the citrus lovers, this is a delicious and bright way to drink your espresso. This Italian style calls for a lemon wedge, peal, or even candied lemon slice to be enjoyed with your espresso.

1.5oz Spotted Bear Spirits coffee liqueur
Top with heavy whipping cream over a bar spoon

Introduced in 1540, this middle eastern coffee staple is a simple combination of extra fine ground coffee, a healthy dose of sugar and water heated in a copper pot over an open flame, or more traditionally in a bath of heated sand.

1.5oz Coffee Liquour
1.5oz Vodka

Affogato Act 2:

1 scoop Madagascar vanilla gelato

1 1/2 oz @spottedbearspirits coffee liqueur

Day 11

Cafe de Olla:

This delicious traditional Mexican coffee drink fuses medium-coarse ground coffee with cinnamon, star anise, ginger, and turbinado sugar (optional).  We added milk foam to ours, giving it a lovely silk texture, but this is optional as well.

Day 12

1 1/2 oz blanco tequila, preferably @spottedbearspirits agave spirit
1 oz @spottedbearspirits coffee liqueur
2 oz cafe de olla or cold brew
1 oz lime juice

Day 14

Hot Apres:

1 1/2 oz Mountain Mint
1 1/2 oz Coffee Liqueur
Whip cream and crushed peppermint candy

Day 15

Vietnamese Coffee:

Vietnamese coffee utilizes one of our favorite coffee brewing devices called a “phin”.  Introduced by French colonialists in the 1800’s, it is composed of four stainless steel parts: a plate, body, press disk and lid.  A traditional Vietnamese coffee uses an indulgent amount of condensed milk with the brewed coffee released on top and mixed.  Adding ice makes for an amazing and refreshing cold drink as well.  Those with a sweet tooth will love this drink!

Day 16

Chambord de Cafe:

1 oz Coffee Liqueur
1 oz Chambord
1 oz Cinnamon Whiskey

Day 17


This is a barista favorite with Spanish origins. The name means “cut” in Spanish – the espresso is cut with an equal amount of steamed milk for a well-balanced drink.

Cool Whip
