Coffee Cocktails

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!

-1oz RumChata

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!

Ingredients:

- 1/2 oz Kahlua

-1 oz vodka

- 2 oz cold or room temperature CoffVee

-Sea salt

-Caramel sauce

-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.
