180-240 ml of strong coffee
22 ml creme de cacao
22 ml kahlua
15 ml brandy
A Hario V60 coffee maker
A coffee mug
A stirring spoon
Brew a strong coffee using your favorite coffee maker. Here I am using the Hario V60 coffee maker. Use the coffee-to-water ratio as per your preferred method and taste. For this, I am combining coarsely ground coffee and hot water in a 1:15 coffee-to-water ratio, ensuring a strong and concentrated brew. The reason for using a strong brew in cocktails is to preserve the coffee flavor.
Take a mug and pour coffee, creme de cacao, Kahlua, and brandy. Once done, give it a fine stir for the ingredients to combine.
Doll it up with some whipped cream. For an extra touch, consider whipping heavy cream manually for a richer texture than alternatives.
Your coffee nudge is ready. Sip it on a winter evening or present it as a showstopper in group gatherings.
And there you have it, folks! The coffee nudge – a taste bud adventure combined in a concise mug. So grab your mug, get your brewing station ready, dip your spoons in whipped cream mountains, and toast in honor of elevating your coffee routine to new heights.
