5 coffee liqueurs to try

We’ve found some of the best coffee liqueurs to try, from a punchy tequila to a smooth, complex amaro

Coffee-based liqueurs and spirits aren’t a new idea, but in recent years the category has expanded, with numerous brands releasing their own high-end versions.

They make for a surprisingly versatile addition to your drinks cupboard. Use them in an espresso martini, in a white or black Russian cocktail, or spike hot chocolate for a boozy mocha. Try mixed with tonic for a low-ABV tipple, or sip neat with ice after dinner. They also work in the kitchen, from drizzling over ice cream to using in a tiramisu (go one step further and try our espresso martini tiramisu here, replacing the kahlua with your coffee liqueur of choice).

Mr Black Coffee Amaro, £37.64/70cl, Amazon

Amaro is a bitter Italian after-dinner herbal liqueur and in this iteration the addition of coffee makes for a very satisfying drink indeed. Botanicals including angelica, coriander, macadamia, caraway and cardamom work with the coffee to add that requisite bittersweet character, as well as more rounded, roasted and caramel notes, while bright citrus comes through thanks to grapefruit, orange and lemon. Sip on its own – over ice – or with tonic.
