How to Make Tequila Infused with Coffee

Two vices for the price of one!

Treat yourself to tequila infused with coffee and flavored with vanilla beans. You deserve it.

Give yourself a few days to let this recipe, courtesy of Dan Jones’ new book Tequila: Shake, Muddle, and Stir, steep to ultimate goodness. Whether you use it to get amped, steel yourself for the crowds at the bar, or simply sip in the quiet of your own home is up to you. No matter the occasion, cheers to putting two of humanity’s best assets—coffee and tequila—together.
