This year, A1 Coffee is striving to bring all of our favourite recipes, tips and tricks to you for Christmas. Stocking new products and more flavours than ever, we have some very big ideas to share with you!
Egg Nog Latte:
Starting off with a plain and simple Latte, add one shot of Egg Nog syrup and stir into the Espresso until dissolved. Add the steamed milk, garnish with squirty cream, and select the topping of your choice from our massive range.
Not only does this recipe work with Egg Nog, but it also works wonders with many other flavours. Our top sellers this Christmas include Winter Spice, Tiramisu (Starbucks’ winter favourite), Black Forest, Gingerbread and many, many more!
Orange Hot Chocolate:
For this recipe you are going to need a rich Hot Chocolate (preferably dark, but milk works) and a shot of Monin Orange Curacao syrup. Add the shot of syrup and mix well. Just like the Egg Nog Latte, garnish with lots of whipped cream and toppings of your choice.
Other flavours that work magic in Hot Chocolates include Salted Caramel (very popular this year), Peppermint, Chocolate Cookie and more!
Zuma Gold Dust is an amazing new topping that will fast become one of your favourites. Ideal for adding to your frothy coffees and Hot Chocolate to create something truly special, it adds a regal touch that will really grab your attention. As well as adding a delicious layer of chocolate, the speckled gold colours shimmer on the top of your drink - try using a dusting of this with a coffee stencil for a seriously professional presentation. Or you can be adventurous by mixing it into your Hot Chocolate powder before you mix it with water, to give you a gold shimmer throughout your drink!
Spiced Christmas coffee:
180ml chilled whipping cream
235g freshly ground coffee
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
5 teaspoons ground cardamom
1.5 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon brandy
Using an electric mixer, beat the whipping cream into soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar and brandy and beat into the peaks. Place the ground coffee, sugar, cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon into a coffee filter, then mix gently with a spoon. Add water to the coffee machine and brew according to manufacturer’s instructions. Divide the coffee amongst 8 cups. Finally, garnish with cream and serve immediately.
We also stock a massive range of stencils for both commercial and personal use. We stock stencils for occasions including Halloween and Christmas, as well as stencils with messages to be used all year round. Our Christmas range includes pictures such as Christmas Trees and Snowmen, and messages including “Happy Xmas” and many more!
Or if you are looking for a cheeky after dinner beverage, then why not try our coffee on the rocks recipe? (Warning! – strictly for adults!)
All you will need is a fresh jug of filter coffee that has been allowed to cool, a bottle of vanilla vodka and a bottle of Baileys. Freeze the coffee in ice cube trays overnight, then the next day when you are ready to serve, place 4 coffee ice cubes into a glass, along with 2 shots of vodka then top up the glass with Baileys!
