Add a Blast of Booze to Your Morning Cup of Joe on National Coffee Day!

Forget, “its five o’clock somewhere.” National Coffee Day on September 29th gives us a great excuse to indulge in a cocktail bright and early! To celebrate, there’s no shame in opting for a shot of Irish cream or a slug of whisky in your morning Joe, but why not be a little more creative and classy with your A.M. drinking?


Mexican Café

1 ¼ parts Illy canned sweetened coffee

1 ½ parts Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila

¼ part Coffee Herring

Orange slice for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake and strain in to a glass coffee mug and garnish with orange slice.


Maker’s 46 Latte

Created by Chef Gary Anza, Bistro 33 

1 part Maker’s 46 Bourbon

2 tablespoons fresh finely ground espresso

4 parts spring water

3 parts + 1 ounce organic whole milk

½ cup ice cubes

½ part vanilla vodka

1 rock candy swizzle stick

Fresh ground nutmeg

 Prepare espresso in stove top espresso maker. Bring 3 parts milk in a small saucepan or Turkish coffee pot to boil. Mix espresso and milk in coffee mug. Add Maker’s 46™ Bourbon. Make the vanilla vodka foam: Add vanilla vodka and 1 part milk to small shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until frothy. Pour foam over espresso milk mixture. Add swizzle stick and pinch of nutmeg. Stir and enjoy.

Tasting Notes: Chef Gary recommends this as an after dinner indulgence or brunch accompaniment. The vanilla vodka pairs well with the natural vanilla notes in the Maker’s 46™ Bourbon, and the rich espresso flavor is a perfect match for its smoky undertones.

 1 ½ parts Sugar Island Coconut Rum

¼ part white crème de menthe

2 ¼ parts milk hot chocolate
