Warm, nutty and delicious: three words that perfectly describe Cafe Amore and French Connection Coffee. This warm cocktail is a beautiful mixture of Cognac, coffee and almond, one you are sure to fall in love with!

Typically, the Cafe Amore uses equal parts (1 ounce each) of the liquors, while the French Connection Coffee has 1 1/2 ounces Cognac and 1/2 ounce amaretto. Also, on the cooler side, skip the coffee and make a French Connection No. 1 or 2.

What You'll Need

  • 1 ounce Cognac
  • 1 ounce amaretto
  • 8 ounces coffee (black; more or less to fill glass)
  • Garnish: 
  • whipped cream
  • Garnish: shaved almonds

How to Make It

  1. Pour the Cognac and amaretto into an Irish coffee glass.
  2. Fill with hot coffee.
  3. Top with whipped cream.
  4. Garnish with shaved almonds.
