2. Cloud 9 Coffee (Whiskey)
After a single sip, you’ll totally understand why it’s called Cloud 9, because this coffee cocktail is nothing short of heavenly. Coffee combined with Irish Whiskey, Hazelnut Liqueur and chocolate syrup make this one of our favorite coffee cocktails by far. This cocktail tastes like an alcoholic, Nutella flavored coffee. If you’re wondering, it’s as good as it sounds.

5. Black Jack (Cognac)
Everything’s better with a cherry on top, and coffee cocktails are no exception. Made with a base of cold coffee combined with cognac and cherry liqueur, you’ll be dreaming about this drink for days.
Since Cognac is basically concentrated wine, it’s the perfect companion for cherry liqueur. Combine them with coffee, and you’ve got a caffeine-infused cherry bomb, ready to detonate in drinkable form. Sign us up!
