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!
Chambord de Cafe:
1 oz Coffee Liqueur
1 oz Chambord
1 oz Cinnamon Whiskey
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.

Blend ice, chocolate syrup, espresso, and sugar. Top with whipped cream and an extra chocolate swirl!
1.5 oz Frangelico
1.5 oz Coffee Liqueur

We can’t wait for old Saint Nic to be visiting our homes. And for us at Thriver’s we’ll be leaving him this tasty treat consisting of layered vanilla ice cream and ginger snap cookie crumble topped with hot coffee! This should be just the pick me up he needs to keep a pep in his step on his 24-hour world tour!
