Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make bourbon coffee:

  • bourbon
  • maple syrup – you can also use brown sugar but combine it with hot coffee first to dissolve it, then add bourbon
  • coffee – preferably strongly brewed coffee, you can also use coffein-free
  • whipped cream – as a topping, preferably homemade – it tastes so much better than store-bought!
  • chocolate shavings (optional, but why not!)

You could also add some vanilla extract to this coffee.

You could also add some cream to your coffee if you don’t like it black, but bear in mind that the whipped cream will slowly melt down into the coffee so it won’t taste purely like black coffee.

This coffee tastes quite strong, so you must really like bourbon whiskey to like this drink!
