Java Piquant

1 ¼ oz. coffee liqueur
1 oz. dark rum
1 oz. Irish cream
1 oz. horchata
½ oz. orange curaçao
¼ oz. cinnamon schnapps
optional: 1 oz. espresso

Mix all ingredients and shake with ice until chilled.
Pour into a chilled tumbler and serve over ice.

Drink this if: Creamy, coffee-y, cinnamony concoctions cheer you up. With a touch of refreshing citrus taste provided by the curaçao, this one hits your lips with a sweetness that soon transforms to smooth spiciness softened by enveloping cream. Throughout you’ll find the smoky, bittersweet essence of coffee (especially if you add a shot of espresso) and underlying sharp caramel notes from the rum.

If you’d prefer a winter warmer, just heat this drink up; it will retain its deliciousness—but don’t let it boil or you’ll lose the alcohol!
