Dear Cocktail Culture Reader,

My name is Stephanie and, as the newest contributor to the Cocktail Culture blog, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself in hopes that you get to know me a bit better.  Here are three things that you must absolutely know about me:

  1. I am a sports nut! Talk to me about football, tennis, basketball, soccer, baseball, college sports – I promise, I’m all ears!
  2. My music preferences are wide and varied, but I always love myself a bit of good ol’ 80s metal (a la Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe)
  3. I am addicted to coffee. Hands down, cannot last through the morning (or afternoon) without it. I need more than a cup to get my daily ‘jolt’. I drink only black. I have invested a small fortune into Starbucks. You get the picture, right?

So while I could write an entire novel on how David Lee Roth is a better front man 1000x more than Sammy Hagar, I’ll dabble into something more relevant: coffee cocktails. So toss the energy drink aside and try one of these enticing java drinks instead.

Hazelnut Coffee

  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Hazelnut Liqueur
  • ½ part Kahlua®
  • 4 parts hot coffee
  • Splash of cream

Combine ingredients and serve in a coffee mug.

Black Bomber

  • 1 shot espresso
  • ½ part Hiram Walker® Anisette
  • 1½ parts Beefeater® Gin
  • Dash orange bitters (optional)

Pour the espresso into an empty shaker. Add Anisette, gin & optional bitters. Fill with ice, shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with 3 espresso beans.

Triple Shot Café Latte – created by Cheri Loughlin

  • 3/4 part Hiram Walker® Coffee Flavored Brandy
  • 1/2 part Hiram Walker® Amaretto Liqueur
  • 3/4 part Hiram Walker® Blackberry Flavored Schnapps
  • 3 parts Half & Half

Combine liquids in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill.  Strain into a goblet over fresh ice.

I also hope to get to know you better as well. Shoot me an email or add me on Twitter @stephaniejerzy. I look forward to connecting and chatting cocktails in the near future.
