How you can booze your brew at Blue Collar Delafield & Indy:


BAILEYS IRISH CREAM

A classic mix, Irish cream and coffee is a staple. The texture of Baileys lends itself to that of a creamer. This one just offers the smoothness of whiskey.


RUMCHATA

Wisconsin’s very own cream liqueur. It’s flavored with cinnamon and vanilla, which pairs perfectly with your favorite cup of coffee.


JAMESON IRISH WHISKEY

You can only make an Irish coffee with Irish whiskey. And that’s all we’re going to say about that.


KAHLÚA COFFEE LIQUEUR

Kahlúa already has a coffee flavor, so it’s not a pungent addition to your brew, but it adds a touch of sweetness. If you don’t want caffeine, add Kahlúa to your hot chocolate.
