Coffee and alcohol are a match made in heaven. You will see this combination in various drinks and desserts all across the world and this pairing is also considered one of the most luxurious. But among the various liqueur options, let's look at seven spirits that pair with coffee better than the others.

Whiskey

Irish coffee commonly features Irish whiskey in its preparation. Not only that, cinnamon and maple whiskeys are also a popular addition to many espresso-based beverages.

Brandy

These common post-dinner beverages when combined result in a lovely nighttime drink. Simply add a shot of brandy to a freshly brewed coffee and you're done.

Chocolate Liqueurs

Chocolate liqueurs complement the bitter coffee extremely well. Dark Chocolate Orange Espresso Martini and Chocolate Coffee Martini are popular examples.

Hazelnut Liqueurs

The Nutty Irishman and Frangelico Coffee are popular beverages that combine hazelnut liqueur and coffee. The nutty flavour pairs well with the flavours of coffee.

Amaretto

Amaretto coffee is a classic beverage that is smooth in nature and tastes fantastically well. 

Vodka

Russian Coffee is the best example of this pairing along with Mocha Espresso Martini.

Rum

Combining the two drinks results in a unique flavour that is smooth, and sweet but woody. Pharisäer Kaffee is a great example of the coffee-rum pairing made with Jamaican rum.
