The holidays bring with them family catch ups and therefore aunties and uncles you haven’t seen for years, asking you questions about the holidays you went on five years ago to build small talk. Yawn. That’s why we have devilled up this list of coffee cocktails for you. For the love of coffee and your sanity, I guess.


Sanity Saver No 1.-  Hot White Russian

Cheeky name that already sounds fun. This is like an adults version of hot chocolate.

What you will need:

  • 2 1/2 cups of coffee
  • 1/2 cups of Kahlúa
  • 1/4 cups vodka
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Whipped cream for garnish if desired

What to do:

Get out a saucepan and mix together the fun makers- coffee, cream, Kahlua and vodka. Keep on the stove until the mixture is hot. Once heated split amongst your festive mugs. Bon appetite enjoy!


Sanity Saver No 2. – Siciliano

What you will need:

  • 5 shots of sweet vermouth
  • 1 shot of amaro
  • 1 shot of strong cold-brew coffee
  • Half a shot of simple syrup
  • Soda Water
  • Slice of orange

What to do:

Mix together vermouth, amaro, coffee, and syrup in a shaker. Add ice to fill and top off with soda water. Garnish with orange to look sleek and fabulous 007 style.


Sanity Saver No 3 – Affogato Martini

What you will need:

  • ½ shot of Kahlua
  • 5 shots of vanilla vodka
  • 1 shot of Crème de Cacao
  • Scoop of vanilla ice cream

What to do:

Add together the vanilla vodka, crème de cacao, and Kahlua. Shake in a shaker. Put in a few ice cubes and continue shaking until the drink is cold. Pour into serving glass and top off with a scoop of ice cream – be careful of the splash. YUM is all I can say about this one.


Caffeine for the soul!
