Hard Coffee is a Hit
Coffee has always gone well with spirits and liqueurs—what’s an Irish coffee without whiskey? Or Bailey’s Irish Cream? Even now, espresso martinis remain incredibly popular all over the country. It makes sense, then, that distillers and brewers are cutting out the proverbial middle man and getting into the hard coffee business themselves. And the results, as you might expect, are delicious.
