Up next is a spiked coffee recipe from Giada De Laurentiis herself. This drink involves a different coffee liqueur (Kahlúa), and instead of freshly brewed coffee, it calls for a cup of espresso. This coffee cocktail will knock you off your feet in the best way possible — and we should also mention that vodka might be involved. This recipe serves 8.


  • 1½ cups coffee liqueur (recommended: Kahlúa)
  • 1 cup dark creme de cacoa
  • 1½ cups vodka
  • 1 cup espresso, cooled
  • 1 orange wedge
  • Orange sugar crystals
  • 12 ice cubes

Directions: Mix the coffee liqueur, creme de cacoa, vodka, and espresso in a small pitcher. Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap and place it in the freezer until the mixture is very cold, about 3 hours. Meanwhile, rub the rims of 8 martini glasses with the orange wedge. Dip the rims in the sugar crystals to coat lightly. Place the glasses in the freezer. Add the ice cubes to the vodka mixture and briskly stir the mixture until the ice begins to melt. Strain the mixture into the prepared glasses and serve.
