Kick Off the Holidays with Tia Maria Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur

Kick Off the Holidays with Tia Maria Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur

The holiday season is a time for celebration and festive gatherings. We have fond memories of our mother and aunts enjoying the season’s family gatherings over a few glasses of Tia Maria. To many, like our family, this beloved Caribbean coffee liqueur recipe is a must during the holiday season. Tia Maria, a Cold Brew coffee liqueur, is renowned for its robust character and intricate aromatic profile and stands out in the world of spirits. Crafted meticulously from 100% Arabica coffee beans, sourced from Brazil, it undergoes a patented roasting method and a cold brew extraction process, resulting in a seamless blend of sweetness and smoothness that defines the distinctive taste of Tia Maria.

Primarily designed to elevate the classic Espresso Martini cocktail, Tia Maria’s foundation lies in the rich, roasted flavor of Brazilian Arabica coffee beans. The addition of Madagascar Vanilla not only imparts softness and roundness to the liqueur but also unifies the flavors, providing a lasting impression. The key allure of Tia Maria lies in its artful balance of sweetness and smoothness.

This exquisite liqueur, showcased in a dark amber hue with glimmers of sparkling gold, presents a sensory journey. The nose is greeted by a robust coffee aroma, accompanied by subtle notes of chocolate and pipe tobacco. As the journey progresses, hints of caramelized cane sugar and vanilla emerge, creating a compelling olfactory experience.

On the palate, Tia Maria unveils its complexity. Initially sweet, it swiftly evolves into a harmonious blend, guided by the discreet freshness and acidity characteristic of 100% Arabica coffee beans. This nuanced interplay cleanses the palate, allowing the primary notes of coffee and chocolate to shine, complemented by undertones of cacao, dried fruit, and vanilla.

Tia Maria leaves a lasting impression with a limpid clarity and mild fluidity. The finish is marked by good persistency, with intense closing notes of coffee, vanilla, and cacao. With a medium body and versatile serving options, Tia Maria is best enjoyed neat over ice or as a key ingredient in classic cocktails like the Espresso Martini, White Russian, Irish Coffee, or the refreshing Tia Tonic.
