    Three Fun Summer Alcoholic Beverages Using Acid-Free Coffee

    Three Fun Summer Alcoholic Beverages Using Acid-Free Coffee

    by Alex Brecher July 21, 2023

    Summer is a time to kick back and relax. For many people, alcoholic beverages are part of their summer traditions. Alcoholic beverages with coffee can enrich your drinks by adding intense flavor and personality. Here are three fun beverages. 

    Best Coffee to Use

    Using caffeinated coffee is a way to energize while drinking, while you can use decaf if you’re having a late-night drink and you want to fall asleep faster. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee comes in caffeinated and decaffeinated varieties, and they all come from the same great-tasting coffee beans. Low-acid coffee can be gentler on your stomach, and Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee can add complexity to your beverages, so enjoy!

    Drink Responsibly

    Be warned. These alcoholic beverages taste amazing. You may be tempted to keep making and drinking them, and that’s a recipe for disaster! If you choose to drink, it’s best to follow national guidelines and limit yourself to one drink a day if you are a woman, or two drinks per day if you are a man. In addition, be aware that having caffeine and alcohol at the same time can alter your senses, so it’s best to be cautious while drinking.

    Iced Irish Coffee Recipe with Low-Acid Coffee

    This may be the most well-known alcoholic recipe with coffee. It has cold brew coffee and Irish whiskey, along with sugar to sweeten it.

    Makes 1 serving

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. In a bowl, gently combine whiskey and coffee grinds, and set them aside for 15 minutes before straining through a coffee filter into a cocktail shaker.
    2. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cold brew coffee to dissolve the sugar. Add it to the shaker.
    3. Shake and strain, then pour in a glass and top with cream.
    4. Serve and enjoy!

    Affogato Martini with Coffee

    This recipe is a variation on a regular affogato martini. In addition to ice cream and coffee liqueur, this recipe includes Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee to enhance the flavor. Use decaf coffee if you are having this as an evening dessert and don’t want to stay up extra late.

    Warning: this is a strong drink that goes down easily because of the ice cream. It may be best to stick to half of it.

    Makes 1 serving

    2. Pour the mixture into a glass. Add the vanilla ice cream and any additional coffee, as desired.
    3. Serve and enjoy!

    This has a variety of flavors and can be a treat for summer nights.
