It’s no secret that we’re all highly caffeinated all the time. So when National Coffee Day rolls around on September 29th, it makes sense that you’ll want to head to the coffee shop, but we have a different suggestion – coffee inspired cocktails! That’s right, take your love of coffee to the next level and celebrate National Coffee Day with from start to finish with a morning cup of joe and an evening coffee cocktail. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
Take a look at the recipes below and get your shaker ready!

The Golden #1
Created by Enzo Cangemi, Babbalucci (NYC, also Campari America Brand Ambassador)
- 1.25 oz. Frangelico
- 0.25 oz. Coffee Syrup
- 2 Dashes Chocolate Mole bitter
- Top off with Prosecco
Pour ingredients into a champagne flute and enjoy!
- 1 can espresso (such as Starbucks Doubleshot)
- 1 mini Frangelico bottle
- 1 oz rum
- .5 oz simple syrup
Toss about a third of that can of espresso (drink or pour out the rest), the rum, and the orgeat into a shaker with ice. Shake it around and carefully pour the mixture back into the can the espresso came in. Stick a straw into the can and then insert the mini Frangelico upside down into the mouth of the can, which should just fit if you give it a good shove.
