Concluding your sophisticated dinner party with a special signature coffee drink will make you the most memorable host on the block. These few coffee recipes are sure to perk up after dinner conversation and maybe even lead to a bit of lively after dinner gaiety.
Why not offer your guests dessert and after dinner coffee in one dazzling, sweet package? Blend cold brewed coffee, vanilla ice cream, and heavy whipping cream in your blender to create a silky smooth, super decadent, after dinner treat that will satisfy sweet tooths and caffeine fiends alike. Make it fancy with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a dash of ground cinnamon.
Pumpkin Coffee Frappe
Another frosty variation of an after-dinner coffee, this frappe calls for cold brew coffee, heavy whipping cream, a heaping tablespoon of pumpkin puree, a handful of ice and a generous dash of pumpkin pie spice all blended together. Your guests will marvel at your ability to condense the pumpkin pie experience into a delightfully chilled frappe, but you don’t have to share the recipe unless you really want to.
This traditional Cuban coffee delicacy offers an ultra-rich layer of sweet crema (cream) floating over strong espresso. To perfect your Cuban crema, whisk about 1 tablespoon of your freshly brewed espresso with sugar until becomes light and foamy. Finish by pouring the pot of espresso over the foam. Voila, the perfect end to a perfect meal!
