Coffee and alcohol might be the drink world’s best example of “opposites attract.” Consider classic Irish coffee, Tik Tok-beloved spiked dalgona coffee, the brooding Mocha Russian and other boozy coffee concoctions. Coffee, so often considered a morning beverage, takes on an entirely different character when spiked with alcohol, which, no surprise, is far more often associated with nightlife. When combined, the drinks are appropriate in both realms. After all, a spiked coffee makes for both a decadent breakfast drink and a late-night eye-opener, depending on your mood.
Such is the case with RumChata-spiked iced coffee. RumChata, the cream liqueur made with rum, cream and cinnamon, adds a horchata-like character to richly-flavored iced coffee. It’s a delightful thing to sip at any time of day.
