Recipe: Spiced Coffee

Spiced Coffee | Cocktail Recipe |Melbourne Cocktails

There is so much more to coffee cocktails than espresso martinis, yet everyone seems to be stuck there – in espresso martini land. So I decided to get creative with the liquid stimuli.

This is not a mutiny. We will still continue to love the staples – I mean just try to tell Melbourne that the espresso martinis days are over and you’ll get riots in the street.

It is simply time to give the status quo a gentle nudge.


  • 60ml Little Drippa cocktail coffee (chilled)
  • 45ml Tequila
  • 100ml coconut milk
  • 30ml cinnamon syrup (see note)
  • 1tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp ginger powder
  • Garnish: sprinkle of cinnamon powder and a cinnamon quill


Add ice and all ingredients to cocktail shaker. Shake well. Pour into short glass over ice. Garnish.

Note: to pre-make cinnamon syrup, add 1 cup water and 3 cinnamon sticks to a small saucepan. Bring to the boil; reduce to simmer for 10 mins. Add ½ cup caster sugar and stir over low heat til dissolved. Remove from heat, cool and strain into glass jar for storage. Makes approx 200ml.
