Drink of the Day: Coffee Alexander

October 2, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Happy Friday!  Finally, another week done and it’s time to enjoy the reason why you work so hard in the first place.  Hopefully, you will have enough time to treat yourself to one of these great gin cocktails while doing so.

A spinoff from the classic Alexander Cocktail, this one adds the flavor of coffee liqueur to get your taste bud’s attention.  You will be amazed on how well the ingredients work together to give you a very tasty cream beverage that you can enjoy after a hearty meal or even during the cocktail hour to help you get in the right state of mind; a perfect Friday introduction if I do say so myself.

Enjoy your weekend.  Cheers!
