This weekend is Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby! These events are known for their delicious margaritas and mint juleps and as coffee-obsessed individuals, it got us thinking about coffee cocktails.
Below are a few of our favorite recipes adapted from the Thrillist. We suggest using CoffVee for a heart healthy boost!
This margarita is a great addition to your Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
-1 cup softened chocolate ice cream
-1/3 cup prepared espresso
-1/4 cup tequila
-Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
Instead of a mint julep, try this coffee and RumChata concoction.
-3oz of room temperature CoffVee
-Combine in a shaker with ice. Strain and serve.
The Salted Caramel Coffee Martini
Martinis are not a traditional Cinco de Mayo or Kentucky Derby libation, but this one just tastes too good not to include!
- 1/2 oz Kahlua
-1 oz vodka
- 2 oz cold or room temperature CoffVee
-Rim a martini glass with caramel sauce and dip it in sea salt. Drizzle caramel syrup inside the glass too. Combine the liquids into a shaker with ice. Strain and serve in the martini glass.
