Inspired Winter Cocktail Recipes With 9 Coffee Liqueurs

Winter may be cold, but coffee and booze is hot right now. It seems with each passing season that more small-batch distillers are finally taking coffee as seriously as they do their spirits, resulting in some creative coffee liqueurs that lend themselves to fireside sipping.
