This is when an instant coffee comes to the rescue. At home it only takes a few minutes to boil the small quantity of water you need, and in a restaurant there's often a pot of hot water ready for those tea drinkers.
Make sure the coffee is of high quality and rich; I prefer the dark roasts for use in any cocktail recipes.
1 ounce coffee liqueur
1/2 ounce creme de cacao
1/2 ounce brandy
8 ounces VIA Italian Dark Roast coffee
Directions Pour a packet of VIA into a large coffee cup and add 8 ounces of boiling water. Pour the coffee liqueur, creme de cacao, and brandy into the coffee and stir well. Top with fresh whipped creme.
