Celebrate Coffee Day (with Cocktails)

Worldwide, coffee is the second-most consumed beverage, just behind water. And let’s face it–for some of us, that order is switched. If you’re the sort of person who can’t fathom talking to another human before your first cup, then you’ll be delighted to learn (or remember) that there’s an entire day dedicated to coffee! But simply having your usual one (or four) cups in the morning isn’t very celebratory, so we’re offering you these coffee-inspired cocktails to extend your Coffee Day well into the evening!
