Recipe – Tia Maria Coffee Cocktails

I love coffee – I love cocktails. I was extremely happy when the nice folks at Tia Maria offered me the chance to try some Coffee Cocktails! Tia Maria is a dark liqueur made originally in Jamaica using coffee beans. The main flavour ingredients are coffee beans, Jamaican rum, vanilla, and sugar. There is literally NOTHING not to like about this beverage.  I’m a massive espresso martini fan, and generally my experience of coffee cocktails ends there – until now!

These five simple Tia Maria Coffee Cocktails are pretty easy to reproduce at home – grab a bottle and some of the other ingredients for these warming delights.
