Below, Caffè di Artisan shares five of the best decaf coffee cocktail recipes for you to try. And since they are decaf, you won’t have to worry about the caffeine buzz keeping you awake.
Boozy Coffee Milkshake with Salted Caramel Sauce
Nightcaps are often sweet and, in some ways, stands in as an adult dessert. A prime example is the boozy coffee milkshake with salted caramel sauce.
It all starts with large blender. Fill it with ½ cup ice cubes, 2 Caffè di Artisan decaf coffee pods, 1 cup cold milk of your choosing, 2 scoops ice cream (vanilla works best), 1 shot whiskey or rum, and 2 tablespoons salted caramel sauce.
Blend until light and frothy. Feel free to tweak the measurements of coffee or whiskey to match your personal preferences.
Coffee Cocktail with Whiskey
While the above recipe is a guaranteed winner, some folks prefer warm drinks before bedtime. If this describes you, you might be more inclined towards the coffee cocktail with whiskey.
Begin by pouring 2 Caffè di Artisan decaf coffee pods into a serving glass. Froth it for 30 seconds before adding 1 cup hot water and 1 tablespoon sugar. Mix well. Pour ¼ cup whiskey into the liquid coffee mixture and stir quickly. Once complete, top with whipped cream and powdered cinnamon.
Tipsy Pumpkin Latte
If you love fall flavors, you’ll absolutely adore the tipsy pumpkin latte. Of course, you won’t have to wait until autumn to make this drink. Serve it year around to delight guests or simply enjoy it on a quiet night with your spouse.
First, brew a cup Caffè di Artisan’s decaf coffee. Then add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, stirring until the ingredients are nearly dissolved.
Next, add ¼ cups RumChata and 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie vodka. Serve warm with a light layer of whipped cream and ground cinnamon on top. Delicious!
Decaf Hot White Russian
Our next suggestion for a no-buzz nightcap is the ever-classic hot white Russian.
In a saucepan, stir 2 to 3 cups of Caffè di Artisan decaf coffee according to your taste preferences. Next, add ½ cup heavy cream, ½ cup Kahlúa (or a similar coffee-liqueur), and ¼ cup vodka (or to taste). Heat the mixture over moderate heat. The goal isn’t to cook the concoction, but rather to warm it up.
Divide evenly amongst two to three mugs, add whipped cream. How easy was that?
Decaf Affogato Martini
Last but not least is the decaf affogato martini. As you might expect, it is ice cream with a coffee- and alcohol-kick.
Add 2 ounces of vanilla vodka into a shaker along with a 1 decaf coffee pod and one ounce of Kahlua. Include 3 or 4 ice cubes and share with vigor. Pour the alcoholic mixture over ice cream in a martini glass. Add any topics you like including caramel, salt, cocao powered, or even a cherry.
