Spiked Arabic Coffee Cocktail Recipe

A delicate balance of caffeine, cream and cocktail, this drink recipe makes for the perfect after-dinner sip. It's relaxing, yet energy-boosting, creamy, yet crisp.

Perhaps best of all, because it's an iced drink, you can make a large batch well in advance, so serving this cocktail recipe is both simple and stress-free.

We whipped up our coffee cocktail to enjoy while watching all the award shows this year - it's actually inspired by the best picture winner, Argo!

Whether you're looking for the added boost of energy to make it through those last speeches, or just in the mood for a spiked dessert cocktail after a dinner party, this drink recipe won't disappoint!


4 ounces of Arabic iced coffee

1 ounce of Crème de Menthe

1 dollop of whipped cream

1 slash of vanilla

chocolate shavings for garnish

1 cup of ice


Add the iced coffee, vanilla, ice, and Crème de Menthe to a cocktail shaker and shake until fully blended before pouring into a coffee glass. If you are looking for something sweet and milky add your desired milk to the blend. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings before serving.
