Coffee Cocktails 3 Ways!

Anders Erickson shows us 3 ways to use coffee in our cocktails!

In today’s video I’m showing you 3 ways to use coffee in your cocktails! This is something I’ve been looking forward to because I can finally reveal a project I’ve been working on. I’ve developed my own blend of coffee! I’m calling it Bartender’s Blend! Coffee’s helped a lot of us in the service industry get through those long nights serving guests, but in the past I’ve struggled to find one that’s light enough for my daily cup, yet bold enough to hold up in a cocktail. Thankfully, with the help of a couple friends who understand coffee, we discovered that sweet balance! I’ve tested these beans in numerous applications – with and without alcohol. So here’s 3 ways you can apply good coffee to your cocktail mixing. Hope you enjoy these drinks, and I hope you have good coffee. Cheers!
