Louisana Coffee


Dancing Bee Raikou Louisiana Coffee




The American Revolutionary War was a time full of passion and fiery spirit and from this came my inspiration for the ‘Louisiana Coffee’ cocktail.

The Americans, with help from the French, defeated their colonial oppressors. And like that, my espresso martini with Kentucky Bourbon and French Cognac, will lift your spirits and beat away any winter blues.

Into this winning mix I’ve added Kokako espresso and a dash of Kahlua for depth.

And last but not least, the orange blossom water, for the final sweet taste of victory.

Here’s a toast to spirit and success!
