Coffee & Chocolate Bourbon…

Hello, happy Sunday. Are you having a nice relaxing weekend or are you super busy?

Fancy a tipple tonight?

Or maybe you are looking for an alcoholic recipe to make up and share over Winter? Something different to serve up for Christmas or just something to make to keep you warm at night?

How about trying this coffee and chocolate bourbon recipe out?

This richly flavoured infusion makes a charming homemade gift for bourbon lovers and is also great with chocolate desserts or as a digestif.

Perfect for a Christmas gift too. I know someone special I could make this for a gift idea.

How to make Coffee & Chocolate Bourbon:
Makes: about 850ml


  • 1 tbsp chocolate extract
  • 100ml freshly brewed espresso
  • 700ml bourbon
  • 150g caster sugar


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a large (minimum 1.5 litre) Kilner jar or wide-necked bottle.
  2. The drink is then ready to serve – simply decant into a pretty bottle or smaller presentation bottles.
