No Fail Specialty Coffee Drinks

Let’s be honest here. We aren’t all baristas who can pour the perfect latte art. But, the recipes I have curated for you below will have you second guessing your ability in the coffee world!

Why not curate delicious drinks at home? Let’s start brewing up goodness!

Bee Sting

When its hot outside I grab an iced coffee for my afternoon pick me-up! I love when my iced coffee has a sweet kick to it and this bee sting satisfies that craving!

Here is what you need to have to get started:

  • AK espresso from BRCC (buy here, if you have a Keurig grab these here)
  • Honey or Agave nectar (buy here)
  • Half & Half (if you are lactose intolerant almond or cashew milk works well!)
  • Ice cubes
  • A rad mug from BRCC (buy here) *your instagram picture will thank you*

Guys! I mean who doesn’t like a good Irish coffee? Well guys, we are making a modified Irish coffee because at Black Rifle we don’t want to hide the flavor of our coffee behind a sugary cast! We want the liquor to shine through with our delicious coffee roasts!

There are a few ways you can make this delicious brew; iced or hot! Either way we like to use espresso shots for our Bailey’s Black Rifle Brew! Trust us when we say its the best way to drink it!

Black Rifle & Bailey’s Brew with Cold Brew Ice Cubes Recipe

Let’s make this in sections!

Cold Brew Ice Cubes:

  • Cold Brew (make some with this easy recipe here)


  1. brew some delicious cold brew (or use coffee from the day)
  2. pour into your ice cube trays
  3. freeze overnight for best results but a few hours will work too!

Black Rifle & Bailey’s Brew:


  • 1 1/2 oz of  Bailey’s Irish Cream (purchase at your local liquor store)
