Orange & Chili Coffee Old Fashioned


It is very much iced coffee weather.  But how about boozy iced coffee weather?  Yes, Yes, and YES!

How about an iced coffee old fashioned?  With say, a touch of sweetness from Grand Marnier, and a kick of fiery chili bitters?  Yes please! 

The sweetness of the orange liqueur pairs beautifully and adds an extra layer of dimension to a classic coffee liqueur such as Tia Maria or Kahlua.  Add a few drops of smoky, spicy heat with Fire and Damnation Bitters to make this cocktail extra memorable and addictive

You might never want a regular iced coffee ever again.

Consider yourself warned.

  1. I read this article this morning as I am drinking...a regular iced coffee. I was about to head to the liquor cabinet when I realized there's actually no iced coffee in the drink! I even reread it to see if I missed something. Then I saw that you call it a Coffee Old Fashioned. You got me!

    Still, sounds like a delicious drink. I like the idea of the orange from the Grand Marnier with the coffee liqueur. But chilli bitters? I am afraid I don't have any of those lying around. I wonder if a dash of Tabasco would work?

  2. @Stay at Home Cocktails - I think Tabasco would be great in this! I'm a huge fan of the Family Reserve Tabasco, which has a great smoky flavor to it! Cheers!
