Whether the weather feels like winter, spring, summer or fall all you’ve got to do is call up your favorite coffee and distilled spirit and soon you’ll hear me knocking at your door. Ain’t it good to know that once you start pouring your favorite coffee and spirits cocktail you’ll have a friend looking to share a glass or perhaps a cup?

Just like a great spirit a great cup of coffee is good year round. Mix the two together and you’ve got the perfect mash up of two highly flavorful drinks that promise to deliver aromas that bring up descriptors like flowery, nutty, smoky, sweetness, saltiness, caramel, vanilla or creamy. Not sure of the best descriptors? Check the two bonus flavor wheels below to get your senses flavor juices flowing.

If you are trying to describe what you are tasting we’ve included two popular flavor wheels to help you articulate your words. Look below the 20 Spiked Coffee Cocktail Recipes you’ll find a Coffee Taster’s Flavor Wheel along with a Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Wheel. And if you are looking for a Vodka flavor wheel you can stop right now. It’s kind of like trying to find Bigfoot because there isn’t one. By its very definition Vodka is technically odorless and flavorless. Ok, just for fun we went ahead and created The Official Vodka Flavor Wheel. You’ll find it at the bottom of this page.

Enjoy!
