Cindy and I love a seemingly odd combination of flavors in the summer: coffee and citrus. While dumping a bunch of lemonade into your cups of coffee may seem terrible, coffee liqueurs and juices of all kinds actually play together quite well. Add orange juice and Cointreau Noir for the Kowloon. Add tequila and lemon juice for the Ixtapa. Add cranberry and Cointreau for a Breeze. Since we like our Ixtapas with lime instead of the lemon, let's use the same proportions of an Ixtapa for a simple, unique taste.


3 ounces Kahlua
1 ounce St-Germain
1/2 ounce fresh squeezed
lime juice

Shake all on ice. Strain into a cocktail glass or coupe. Garnish with a lime twist.
