Italian Coffee recipe

This is the Galliano twist of the well known Irish coffee. You can make it with many variants of the Galliano range. If you like more Vanilla notes, use Galliano Vanilla or L’Autentico. Or go for the typical Italian sambuca or amaretto.

Bartender’s note

Heating your coffee glass or mug helps keep the drink warmer to the last sip. You can fill it with hot water while brewing the coffee. The alternative is to fill the glass with water and microwave it for about 10 seconds. You can lightly whip cream and float it on top of the drink, just like the traditional Irish coffee. While that is amazing, the easy alternative is to simply use canned whipped cream.


Pour the Galliano in a warm Irish coffee glass. Fill with hot coffee and top with whipped cream. Garnish with nutmeg or cinnamon.
