As with many delicious contributions to the world, we largely have Europeans to thank for the concept of mixing alcohol with staples such as coffee and tea. The comfort of morning coffee and soothing tea are both such important daily drinks across the world, that it seems only natural to jazz up these beloved beverages with a little kick of alcohol. Mixes like amaretto and kahlua coffee liqueur are no strangers to flavoring coffee cocktails, and "Irish Coffee" has long been comprised of whiskey, cream, sugar to the morning cup o' Joe. Whether adding a shot of espresso to flavor a vodka cocktail, or making a delicious dessert-like combination of coffee liqueur, cognac and whipping cream; these tea and coffee combinations will have you rethinking your typical caffeine routine.
