There are many coffee liqueurs in the market today to enjoy, but it can be difficult to choose the right one for you. There are many options that we enjoy here at West Vail Liquor Mart, and here are a few to think about.
Kahlua is one of the most popular brands of coffee liqueurs out there, and for good reason. It has a brief bitter note that is followed by a very sweet finish. This is a main ingredient in the famous cocktail, the White Russian. Add a little vodka and cream or milk, and it makes for a smooth easy drinking cocktail to enjoy. Kahlua does contain caffeine, so be weary of drinking it late at night.

Bailey’s Irish Cream has been a staple for many bars around the world for decades. They have recently introduced a new flavor to their lineup, Espresso Cream. This new flavor has a bold dark roast coffee aroma with the taste of fresh ground espresso beans, followed by the creamy smooth finish of the classic Bailey’s Irish Cream. This makes for a great cocktail additive, or for spiking the coffee you just bought at your local Cafe.

The Grind Espresso Shot Liqueur is a new addition in the market from the brand Diageo. Little information is out there about this intense coffee product, but it is definitely worth a try. The flavor is full of rich espresso notes, with a slight sweetness on the finish due to the rum base distillate. It is slightly higher alcohol than the two options mentioned above, which makes it perfect for that cocktail with a bit more kick!

Richardo’s Coffee Liqueur is the only Colorado made coffee option that we have here at West Vail Liquor Mart. It started 20 years ago when Rick and Linda, a couple from Lyons Colorado, began making a coffee liqueur for their friends in small batches. It became so popular that they decided to offer it to the public. It is a crazy good combo of rich coffee, creamy vanilla, and pure grain spirits. The flip top bottle instructs you to, “shake then pour.” By doing this it mixes the vanilla and coffee flavors together so that you can get an even flavor of both.
