Jingle and Mingle With an Irish Cream Coffee-tini

A coffee cocktail is the perfect drink to keep your guests jingling and mingling all night long. Another perk of this crazy-good cocktail? You can make it ahead and in a big batch so you can focus on having fun (and not playing bartender for half the event). A quick drizzle of chocolate syrup makes this drink oh-so impressive, too.


Makes 8 servings


2 cups cold black coffee

2 cups Irish cream liqueur

1 cup vodka

½ cup half-and-half

Chocolate syrup for garnish

Chocolate shavings and cocoa powder for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine coffee (made using a French press or BLOOM Pour Over), Irish cream liqueur, vodka, and half-and-half in a glass pitcher.
  2. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until ready to use.
  3. Drizzle the inside of a martini glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup or more to taste. 
  4. Pour 2/3 cup chilled cocktail base into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  5. Shake for 30 seconds or until very cold.
  6. Strain into a martini glass.
  7. Garnish with chocolate shavings and a dusting of cocoa powder, if desired.
  8. Repeat the process for the remaining drinks.
