Coconut coffee cocktail blends together cinnamon, vanilla, and maple flavors for the delicious morning beverage. It’s the perfect brunch cocktail with a kick of caffeine.
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!
Move on over, Mimosa and Bloody Mary, there’s a new brunch cocktail in town!
Brunch Coffee Cocktail
Easily make cold brew coffee at home using this overnight room temperature brew method. Or, whip up a batch of cold brew coffee concentrate to customize your cup even more.
If you don’t have the patience to brew coffee overnight, you could simply brew a hot pot of coffee. This cocktail tastes great chilled or hot!
- 4 oz cold brew coffee
- 1 oz rum
- 1 oz Licor 43
- pinch of ground cinnamon
- agave syrup, maple syrup, or sweetener of choice
- 0.75 oz heavy cream
- 1 oz coconut cream or full-fat coconut milk (canned version works best)
- cinnamon sugar mixture to rim cocktail glass (optional)
- Add ice cubes to cocktail shaker.
- Pour chilled cold brew coffee.
- Follow with aged rum of choice.
- And Licor 43.
- Add a pinch of ground cinnamon.
- Add coconut cream
- Pour heavy cream and a splash of agave syrup.
- Cover cocktail shaker and shake, shake, shake.
- Lightly moisten the rim of cocktail glass and coat in cinnamon sugar. (optional)
- Pour out shaken cocktail. Add additional ice, if desired.
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.
I highly recommend you try it as a Licor 43 Mini Beer. It only requires two ingredients: Licor 43 and heavy cream!
Rum Coconut Coffee Cocktail Flavor
This well balanced cocktail has warm notes of vanilla and maple with tropical coconut vibes. It’s the perfect brunch cocktail for any season or occasion!
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.

Reader Questions and Reviews
Mmmmmmm, must try!
I hope you do try it, Diane! It’s sooooo good :)
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.
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.
Please, do you have a substitute for Licor 43?
Because I cannot find this product where I’m living.
Thank you so much
Hi, Licor 43 is available for sale online. I’m sorry, I’m not aware of any substitutes.
Sounds amazing. Where in San Diego did you have this drink….and brunch!?!
I had the drink/brunch at Craft & Commerce in the Little Italy neighborhood.
So good! I used Tia Maria in place of L43 and it was still fantastic!
Thanks for trying the recipe! Tia Maria is a great substitute!
