Tequila in Coffee! Yes, you heard right!

If you really want to enjoy a caffeine hit but with an extra boost, this might turn out to be an excellent idea for you! Bring in all the boozy hot chocolates, apple cider cocktails, or even a cup of tea with a dash of alcohol in it! These piping hot concoctions are not only perfect for a cosy night in but are also perfect to warm you up on a chilly winters morning. 

Just like Irish coffee, tequila in coffee is also an amazing option. There are a lot of innovative and delicious recipes that you can find that will keep you falling in love over and over again. 

Tequila in coffee can be an incredible feeling. Creamy, bracing and just so warm. If you want, the coffee could also completely mask the liquor, or the other way round. As you would please. Many variations of tequila can be found on menus listed as “Mexican coffee”. You could pick up one of these and opt for the proportions as per your convenience.
