Coffee with Blackcurrant & Almond: ABC Liquid Dessert

Coffee with Blackcurrant & Almond is a fantastic flavour combination. Try it in my liquid dessert or in my liqueur coffee. Both recipes are quick & easy and perfect for a cosy night at home.
I recommend you serve the ABC Liquid dessert at room temperature, so dig out the alcohol from that chilly store cupboard ahead of time if you need to.

Ingredients

For the ABC Liquid Dessert

  • 60 ml/ 4 tbsp Amaretto
  • 15 ml/ 1 tbsp Creme de Cassis
  • 60 ml/ 4 tbsp Kahlúa coffee liqueur

To serve: whipping cream & 1 crushed coffee bean

    For the Blackcurrant & Almond Liqueur Coffee

    • 300-400 ml/ 1¼ - 1¾ cups Freshly brewed coffee
    • 2 tsp Light brown sugar (optional)
    • 75 ml/ 5tbsp Amaretto
    • 10 ml / 2 tsp Creme de Cassis

    To serve: whipping cream and 2 coffee beans

      Instructions

      For the ABC Liquid Dessert

      • Pour the alcohol into a jug, mix well and divide between 2 small glasses
      • Whip the cream to the 'soft peak' stage. It should be very softly whipped and just hold its shape
      • Pipe or spoon a generous amount of cream over the top of the drinks. Sprinkle the crushed coffee bean over the top and serve immediately

      For the Liqueur Coffee

      • Warm 2 glasses or mugs
      • Add the sugar to the coffee and stir to dissolve
      • Briefly whip the cream, just until it has thickened slightly and looks bubbly, but has not reached the soft peak stage
      • Divide both alcohols between the 2 serving glasses and top up with the hot coffee
      • Gently pour the cream over the top of the drink - holding an overturned spoon just above the coffee and pouring the cream over this helps it to float
      • Top with the coffee beans and serve immediately
