I’ve often wondered why there’s not more overlap between the world of coffee and the world of cocktails.

The two beverages — bookends for many of us on a typical day — were once bit players on the fine-dining stage, prepared without care and presented without ceremony. Today, of course, everything has changed: Restaurants across the country have ambitious cocktail menus, alongside coffee programs featuring name-brand beans, freshly roasted in small batches.

And craft bartenders and baristas tend to be of the same ilk (and I don’t mean just that they share a penchant for fancy hats and waistcoats). They’re passionate geeks and tinkerers who fetishize new equipment and ingredients while keeping their feet firmly rooted in age-old traditions.

So why don’t they hang out together? Rarely does one hear of a barista cross-training at a cocktail bar, nor can one imagine our more serious mixologists steaming milk for a macchiato. And when coffee and spirits do meet in the glass, the result is often disastrous. I’ve seen otherwise decent bartenders pour Baileys into a cup of stale black mud and call the lukewarm mess an Irish Coffee. Oh, the humanity!

But the result can also be sublime. Coffee boasts an incredibly wide range of flavors, depending on its origin and how it was processed, roasted, and prepared. Treated correctly, it can be a powerful component of a mixed drink. At Fort Defiance, my café-bar in Red Hook, Brooklyn, we’re known for our cocktails, but we’ve always taken our coffee seriously, too.

One of my favorite drinks that combine both is the Kirsch au Café (pictured above), adapted from Charles H. Baker, Jr.’s recipe published in his 1939 The Gentleman’s Companion, which explores espresso’s deep chocolate and cherry notes.

Another good tipple to try is talented Los Angeles barman Eric Alperin’s Café Corrección Ponche that plays off cold-brewcoffee’s bright orange-peel and spice flavors.

Either is perfect for a warm spring afternoon, so start grinding some beans now.

Drink One of These Alcoholic Coffee Cocktails, Find Bliss, Repeat

There's the cowboy method of making a coffee cocktail. You know, sloshing a slug of whiskey from a flask into a tin mug of watery, mostly burned, gritty grounds. Horse, hat, and Red Dead Redemption attitude not required. There's the pregame method, too: Brewing a fresh pot after work and adding it to a thermos with whatever alcohol you have stocked on the bar cart (Jameson Cold Brew, if you're lucky), then nursing it in the taxi or on the train to your final destination. There's also the cop-out method, which is sipping one of the handful of esteemed coffee liqueurs that've been introduced to the spirits world over the last decade&mdashMr. Black and Patrón XO Cafe come to mind&mdashover ice.

Or Kahlúa. There's always Kahlúa, though it barely has enough caffeine to rile up a puppy.

But should you want to go legit with your alcoholic coffee cocktail consumption, here's a selection of classic drinks that'll work. A few call for brewed coffee, the others for coffee liqueurs, Kahlúa being the most recognizable but not the only option. From there, it's up to you to balance the confounding coupling of caffeine and alcohol, upper and downer, in a way that leaves you buzzed without swan-diving into sleepiness.

Nirvana can be found at the bottom of your first Irish Coffee. Perhaps your second. Hot, strong, and almost sweet, it's damn near revelatory on an otherwise shit day.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. Irish whiskey
&bull 5 oz. coffee
&bull 2 tsp. sugar
&bull heavy cream

Directions
Pour the whiskey, coffee, and sugar into a heated glass mug. Stir, then top off with a thick layer of lightly whipped heavy cream. Don't stir it in.

Technically speaking, this cocktail isn't a martini. A martini is ice-cold and ice-clear, with dry vermouth. Technically speaking, it's an alcoholic energy shot in a fancy glass. Add simple syrup if you need to take the bite off.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. vodka
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur
&bull 1 oz. fresh espresso

Directions
Shake ingredients together with ice, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with three coffee beans if you want to be cute.

Think of a Mudslide like you would a hot fudge sundae: If a topping sparks your interest, be it cookie crumbles or whipped cream or cherry drizzle, then by all means, pile it on top.

Ingredients
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur
&bull 1 oz. vodka
&bull 1 1/2 oz. Irish cream liqueur

Directions
Combine coffee liqueur, vodka, and Irish cream liqueur in a shaker with ice. Shake for at least 10 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass over ice.

One White Russian-making method has you building it on the rocks, watching the colors swirl and twirl, then stirring and downing it, Dude-style. The other has you shaking it into a froth. Pick your poison.

Ingredients
&bull 1 1/2 oz. vodka
&bull 3/4 oz. Kahlúa
&bull 3/4 oz. heavy cream

Directions
Add vodka and Kahlúa to a rocks glass over ice, top with heavy cream, then stir if you're so moved. (Alternatively, shake the ingredients well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled Old-Fashioned glass.)

Rob the White Russian of its "white" and you get a darker, bolder, blacker cocktail. Like Dunkin' without vanilla creamer or Folgers without half and half.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. vodka
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur

Directions
Stir ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over fresh ice.

On a parting note, we give you a coffee infusion. Doctor your tequila as such, and you can use it in any funkier tequila cocktail or sip it straight. The recipe comes from Tequila: Shake, Muddle, Stir.

Ingredients
&bull 1 split vanilla pod (bean)
&bull 20 oz. blanco tequila
&bull 3 1/2 oz. freshly ground coffee
&bull 3 1/2 oz. demerara simple syrup*

*Demerara Simple Syrup
&bull 7 oz. water
&bull 3 1/2 oz. demerara, cane, or granulated (raw) sugar
&bull 1 tbsp. golden syrup or corn syrup (optional)

Directions
1. Add a vanilla pod to your tequila and leave to infuse for 24&ndash72 hours (check daily, as you want a gentle vanilla taste if you leave it too long, it becomes too floral).
2. When your vanilla infusion is ready, remove the vanilla pod, then add the ground coffee and give it a good shake. Place the tequila in the freezer for at least 72 hours.
3. Strain through a coffee filter, then add a little of the simple syrup, to taste. Shake well.

Demerara Simple Syrup Directions
1. Boil the water in the saucepan and gently add the sugar. Turn down the heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon for 3&ndash5 minutes until all the sugar is dissolved, and the syrup is clear.
2. Turn off the heat and leave to cool. While still runny, pour into a sterilized mason jar or pour through a funnel into a sterilized glass bottle with stopper. Adding a spoonful of golden syrup to the cooled mixture will help keep it smooth. Store in the fridge for up to six weeks.

Directions
1. Add a vanilla pod to your tequila and leave to infuse for 24&ndash72 hours (check daily, as you want a gentle vanilla taste if you leave it too long, it becomes too floral).
2. When your vanilla infusion is ready, remove the vanilla pod, then add the ground coffee and give it a good shake. Place the tequila in the freezer for at least 72 hours.
3. Strain through a coffee filter, then add a little of the simple syrup, to taste. Shake well.

Demerara Simple Syrup Directions
1. Boil the water in the saucepan and gently add the sugar. Turn down the heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon for 3&ndash5 minutes until all the sugar is dissolved, and the syrup is clear.
2. Turn off the heat and leave to cool. While still runny, pour into a sterilized mason jar or pour through a funnel into a sterilized glass bottle with stopper. Adding a spoonful of golden syrup to the cooled mixture will help keep it smooth. Store in the fridge for up to six weeks.


Drink One of These Alcoholic Coffee Cocktails, Find Bliss, Repeat

There's the cowboy method of making a coffee cocktail. You know, sloshing a slug of whiskey from a flask into a tin mug of watery, mostly burned, gritty grounds. Horse, hat, and Red Dead Redemption attitude not required. There's the pregame method, too: Brewing a fresh pot after work and adding it to a thermos with whatever alcohol you have stocked on the bar cart (Jameson Cold Brew, if you're lucky), then nursing it in the taxi or on the train to your final destination. There's also the cop-out method, which is sipping one of the handful of esteemed coffee liqueurs that've been introduced to the spirits world over the last decade&mdashMr. Black and Patrón XO Cafe come to mind&mdashover ice.

Or Kahlúa. There's always Kahlúa, though it barely has enough caffeine to rile up a puppy.

But should you want to go legit with your alcoholic coffee cocktail consumption, here's a selection of classic drinks that'll work. A few call for brewed coffee, the others for coffee liqueurs, Kahlúa being the most recognizable but not the only option. From there, it's up to you to balance the confounding coupling of caffeine and alcohol, upper and downer, in a way that leaves you buzzed without swan-diving into sleepiness.

Nirvana can be found at the bottom of your first Irish Coffee. Perhaps your second. Hot, strong, and almost sweet, it's damn near revelatory on an otherwise shit day.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. Irish whiskey
&bull 5 oz. coffee
&bull 2 tsp. sugar
&bull heavy cream

Directions
Pour the whiskey, coffee, and sugar into a heated glass mug. Stir, then top off with a thick layer of lightly whipped heavy cream. Don't stir it in.

Technically speaking, this cocktail isn't a martini. A martini is ice-cold and ice-clear, with dry vermouth. Technically speaking, it's an alcoholic energy shot in a fancy glass. Add simple syrup if you need to take the bite off.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. vodka
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur
&bull 1 oz. fresh espresso

Directions
Shake ingredients together with ice, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with three coffee beans if you want to be cute.

Think of a Mudslide like you would a hot fudge sundae: If a topping sparks your interest, be it cookie crumbles or whipped cream or cherry drizzle, then by all means, pile it on top.

Ingredients
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur
&bull 1 oz. vodka
&bull 1 1/2 oz. Irish cream liqueur

Directions
Combine coffee liqueur, vodka, and Irish cream liqueur in a shaker with ice. Shake for at least 10 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass over ice.

One White Russian-making method has you building it on the rocks, watching the colors swirl and twirl, then stirring and downing it, Dude-style. The other has you shaking it into a froth. Pick your poison.

Ingredients
&bull 1 1/2 oz. vodka
&bull 3/4 oz. Kahlúa
&bull 3/4 oz. heavy cream

Directions
Add vodka and Kahlúa to a rocks glass over ice, top with heavy cream, then stir if you're so moved. (Alternatively, shake the ingredients well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled Old-Fashioned glass.)

Rob the White Russian of its "white" and you get a darker, bolder, blacker cocktail. Like Dunkin' without vanilla creamer or Folgers without half and half.

Ingredients
&bull 2 oz. vodka
&bull 1 oz. coffee liqueur

Directions
Stir ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over fresh ice.

On a parting note, we give you a coffee infusion. Doctor your tequila as such, and you can use it in any funkier tequila cocktail or sip it straight. The recipe comes from Tequila: Shake, Muddle, Stir.

Ingredients
&bull 1 split vanilla pod (bean)
&bull 20 oz. blanco tequila
&bull 3 1/2 oz. freshly ground coffee
&bull 3 1/2 oz. demerara simple syrup*
