Coffee and whiskey go together like clockwork—just think of old favorites like Irish Coffee. Usually, brewed Coffee or a coffee liqueur are the elements that give a drink its coffee flavor, but why not give your Coffee a hint of Bourbon as well?

Bourbon flavored coffee is a delectable coffee infused with Bourbon, sweetened with maple syrup, and topped with whipped cream. Bourbon is used to make what is essentially Irish Coffee. It will undoubtedly be a treat for any bourbon drinkers!

Bourbon-infused coffee calls for an intensely flavored Bourbon. When choosing a bourbon, look for one with a beautiful, assertive flavor, hints of citrus and spice, and just the right amount of sweetness to bring out the caramel in the Coffee.

Make Coffee infused Bourbon for 12 to 24 hours if you prefer a robust flavor. The colder months are ideal for hot Coffee. It keeps you warm while you unwind and watch your preferred Series Channel. Hot Coffee could do better in the heat. 

Let's seek out the ideal iced Coffee with a kick. This post will show you how to create both traditional Bourbon Coffee and a Cold Brew Bourbon Cocktail. You can make Bourbon coffee into a cold brew by being left out at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours if you prefer a more robust flavor.

How to make Bourbon-Infused Coffee

Always choose an excellent medium roast coffee with a rich, full flavor that might stand up and enhance the Bourbon as the basis for your Coffee, such as Bourbon Pecan by Alcoeats. Since it's usually preferable to brew Coffee strong, selecting a medium roast is vital since it still has some of the rich caramel notes of the bean without taking on the bitterness that an utterly dark roast could.


Coffee and Bourbon are a natural match. This recipe demonstrates how to marry the two to produce a coffee-infused bourbon that goes great in many bourbon drinks. Two perfect recipes for perfect moods and seasons.
