Licor 43 Coconut Coffee Cocktail

Licor 43 Coconut Coffee Cocktail is the perfect boozy start to a lazy weekend brunch!

Licor 43 Coconut Coffee Cocktail

There are few things finer than weekend brunch.  Last month, I had the most amazing coffee cocktail during my San Diego weekend trip.  A month later and I’m still thinking about that drink.

I’m not one to just sit around and wait for that magical drink to appear again.  Oh no, I’ve been mixing and concocting coffee cocktails every weekend since then. 

After a handful of not so delicious failures, I think I’ve finally got myself a winner!

Thanks to the addition of Licor 43, this Vanilla-Coconut Coffee Cocktail is my new brunch liquid of choice.  

Move on over, Mimosa and Bloody Mary, there’s a new brunch cocktail in town!

What is Licor 43?

It’s a tasty vanilla flavored Spanish liqueur.  Supposedly its made up of 43 ingredients, hence the name.  I haven’t tasted anything like it.  It smells of warm vanilla and honey.   I’ve tried drinking it neat, on the rocks (with ice), and mixed into cocktails.  Needless to say, it is a fantastic addition to drinks.

How does this coconut coffee cocktail taste?

The boyfriend says, “If it were acceptable, I’d drink my coffee this way EVERY morning.”  Unfortunately, it’s not (although, I share the same sentiment about this delicious and fabulous coffee concoction).  

This cocktail is meant for lazy Saturdays and Sundays when you can bum around and be merry.  It reminds me of summer vacation with the sun shining on my face and my toes dug into the warm sand.

CHEERS!

This was a fantastic tribute to an amazing cocktail. Bottomless coffee cocktails with my brunch buffet? You had my curiosity… but now you have my attention.

    Maryanne

    Lol I have had your attention since the first day we met, Alex ;)

Also, see to it that you follow the correct coffee beans and water proportion. Putting too much water and little coffee beans in the coffee maker will certainly yield a poor and “weak” brew. A general rule when brewing is to put 2 tablespoons of grounded coffee beans for every 6 ounces of water.

Hello :)
Please, do you have a substitute for Licor 43?
Because I cannot find this product where I’m living.

Thank you so much
