Tia Maria Cocktails for the Holidays

Tis the season! The holidays are a time to wind down and indulge in your favorite treats. If a favorite indulgence is coffee, then you will be excited to try out a cocktail with Tia Maria Dark Liqueur (SRP: $23.99 for a 750mL or $29.99 1L),  a coffee liqueur made with natural Madagascar vanilla, the finest fresh Arabica coffee roasted to perfection and complemented with a touch of Jamaican rum.

We worked with NJ-based Mixologist, Jillian Maggio, to create tasty coffee-inspired cocktails for the holidays. “Overall, the unique sugars in Tia Maria made the liqueur easy to work with. I highly recommend it in a cocktail for any time of day, not just after dinner. Tia Maria is versatile which allows mixologists to create a variety of cocktails that are festive for any occasion, especially the holidays. In building these recipes, I wanted to showcase the different spices and coffee bean flavors in a festive way that could easily be duplicated at-home.”

Listed below are three specialty cocktails created by Jillian to kick off the holiday season of home entertaining. As you will see below, each recipe can be easily prepared for a small or large group. We recommend serving these drinks with your favorite holiday cookies.
