For a grander take on this drink, substitute a mug of coffee for the espresso and top it with whipped cream spiked with coconut milk and garnished with chocolate shavings.

Coconut cream mocha espresso

Start to finish: 10 minutes


Servings: 1

1 tablespoon heavy cream

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1 ounce Irish cream liqueur

1 ounce chocolate liqueur

3 1/2 to 4 ounces freshly brewed espresso (about a double shot)

Cocoa powder (optional)

In a small glass, mix together the heavy cream and coconut milk. Set aside.


In a small, heat-safe serving glass, combine the Irish cream and chocolate liqueur. Microwave for 1 minute, or until hot. Add the espresso and stir gently.

Float the cream mixture on the top of the drink. To do this, hold a spoon upside down directly over the drink. Slowly pour the cream mixture over the back of the spoon.
