It is known that coffee is an ingredient with high versatility, but have you ever thought of offering your friends a cocktail using coffee?
In the restaurant world, it has always been considered a perfect end to a meal to best conclude a lunch or dinner of any level.
It is the second most-drinking beverage in the world, and even outside our national borders, espresso is now becoming increasingly popular and is now perceived as a much trendier and cooler drink than in the past.
For decades, however, its importance has also come to the world of mixology (a term used to refer to modern cocktail alchemists), which has found espresso coffee to be a perfect ingredient for making soft drinks. In fact, coffee can be offered not only with milk or vegetable beverages (such as soy, almond, and rice) but also with various types of spirits, thus giving this ingredient a more international and modern outlook.
So let’s look at some recipes for making fresh and tasty cocktails and long drinks with our SAIDA coffee.

The cocktail was invented in 1930 by the head bartender at Shannon Airport in Ireland to make the typical Irish mix of whiskey and hot tea more palatable to travelers.
Only later were sugar and cream cheese also added to the drink, thus turning it into a dessert.
3 cl Irish whiskey
3 cl fresh milk cream

Prepare the cocktail directly in a glass, already warmed. Pour in sugar, whiskey and SAIDA coffee in sequence, then mix. At this point, add the milk cream to the surface, thoroughly whipped with the
