Ring in the New Year bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with Velo!

Whether you’re ringing in the New Year with a night at home, or a night on the town, we have some delicious coffee-infused cocktails that will certainly make this New Year’s Eve a night to remember! So, put on your fancy shoes, or your bedroom slippers, and take a look at some of our favourite recipes to welcome 2022!

Toasted Marshmallow Campfire Cocktail

Fire up the espresso maker and get ready for an all-in-one coffee, cocktail, and dessert! This recipe is really easy to make, and certainly worth the indulgence!

Ingredients (1 serving):

First add 2-3 spoonfuls of marshmallow creme, and add a splash of Monin Madagascar Vanilla syrup to your glass. Pour your strong brewed Velo coffee into the mixture, and stir vigorously until combined. We recommend using our Kenya Sasini Estate coffee for this drink! This coffee has flavours of marshmallow, soft fruits, and brown butter - perfect compliments for this cocktail!

Finally, add vodka, ice and give it another stir! Top it off with roasted marshmallows and you are ready to start your night!

Espresso Martini 

If marshmallows aren’t for you, don’t worry! You can never go wrong with this classic Espresso Martini! Be sure to pick up these simple ingredients before making this classic drink!

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • 60mls (2oz.) strong brewed Velo coffee (cooled)
  • 60mls (2oz.) preferred vodka 
  • 30mls (1oz.) coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua
  • Whole coffee beans to garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker about halfway with ice. Add in the vodka, coffee liqueur, and brewed Velo coffee! We recommend our Colombia Dulima with its rich flavours of milk chocolate and caramel, and hints of tart apple and red fruit! 

Shake the mixture for 30 seconds, or until foamy. Strain into a chilled martini glass, top it off with the coffee beans, and sip your way (responsibly) into 2022!

Dublin Iced Coffee

The final coffee cocktail recipe we have to recommend to you this New Year’s Eve! This is for all of you Irish coffee lovers out there, who would like to add just a little bit of a twist! Ready? This is what you need!

Ingredients (1 serving): 

  • 60mls (2oz) of cooled, strong brewed Velo coffee
  • 60mls (2oz) of stout - we recommend Guinness!
  • 45mls (1 ½oz) of Irish whiskey
  • ~ 22mls (¾ oz) of simple syrup
  • 15mls (1oz) of heavy cream or milk
  • Ground cinnamon for serving

Once you have your ingredients, this recipe is easy and breezy to make! Mix the coffee, stout, whiskey and simple syrup into a highball glass. We recommend using our Christmas Holiday Blend coffee with its flavours of brandy, nuts, dried fruit, and cranberries! This coffee will add some extra delicious flavour to your drink!

After you have the first ingredients added to your glass, add your desired amount of ice, and gently pour in the cream (or milk) so that it gradually sinks into the coffee! Finally, add a dash of cinnamon and enjoy!

Welcome 2022!

We hope you have a very healthy and happy New Year! Treat yourself and indulge in one of these delicious cocktails! As always, please remember to enjoy responsibly!
