Boozy orange coffee recipe


  • 25ml Cointreau (or up to 50ml)
  • 150ml freshly brewed black coffee (or up to 200ml)
  • 1 tsp brown sugar (or up to 2 tsp), optional
  • 50ml chilled double cream (optional)


  • STEP 1

    Pour the Cointreau into a warm heatproof glass. Add the freshly brewed black coffee and stir (add 1-2 tsp of brown sugar to make it sweeter if needed).

  • STEP 2

    If adding cream, lightly whip the double cream until thickened. Very slowly pour the cream over the back of a teaspoon into the glass – this ensures it floats on top of the coffee in a layer.
