Do you know what the very 1st Coffee Cocktail was?

🍁 Welcome October, welcome cosy evenings by the fireplace.

Okay, so we don’t actually have a fireplace. But what we do have is lots more interesting coffee facts to share with you this exciting month ahead.

Coffee Cocktails Coffee Myths

Why exciting, you ask? Well, for starters today is #InternationalCoffeeDay! The perfect time to travel back in time to explore what is widely believed to be the very first (modern) coffee cocktail.

Can you guess what it is?

 

Let us take you back to the 1940s

  • You may well have guessed that the very first (modern) coffee cocktail is indeed the renowned Irish Coffee
  • 🇮🇪 Invented by Joe Sheridan during the winter of 1943
  • Born in Northern Ireland, Sheridan was working as a Chef at the airbase in Foynes when he came up with this concoction
  • Needless to say, its fame continues to dominate up until the present day!

The original recipe read:

Cream – Rich as an Irish Brogue
Coffee – Strong as a Friendly Hand
Sugar – Sweet as the tongue of a Rogue
Whiskey – Smooth as the Wit of the Land

 

What else happened in the 1940s?

  • Don’t forget that the popular Asiático has also been around since the 1940s. Yes indeed, believe it or not
  • Especially well-known in Cartagena, Spain. Our city!
  • A delightful treat with condensed milk, brandy and of course Licor 43

See the full recipe for Asiático 43 here on our website or over on our YouTube channel.

Back to 2020

  • Nowadays we are far more spoilt for choice when it comes to coffee cocktails!
  • Espresso Martinis, Carajillos, more floral creations, more herbal drinks, you name it!
  • Here at Licor 43 we are especially big fans of pairing our licor with coffee aka #ThePerfectMatch
  • Something delicious and surprising, for all taste buds 😉

Which one is your fave?
