RE: CLOSED - Coffee Conversation - a chance to #WINHIVE

I confess I am very curious, so I have tried coffee with liqueur, coffee with ice cream, and even coffee with liqueur and ice cream at the same time. Although indeed, it is not the same as enjoying the pure flavor of an espresso coffee, they are pleasant combinations to the palate. However, if you do not have a sweet taste, sometimes this can be cloying.
If you have not tried some combinations of liqueur and coffee or ice cream and coffee, I can tell you that these ingredients have chemical molecules that exhale the aroma and flavor of the coffee. It is not for nothing that there are combinations with dairy products (let's not forget that ice cream is a dairy product). Within dairy products, there is a molecule called butyric acid that gives the typical aroma to butter. This molecule, when combined with the essential acids of coffee, causes pleasure in the palate. It is very profitable for coffee shops that dare to make these blends.
Here is the last thing I have just tried since we are talking about combining coffee with liqueur and ice cream.
It is a baileys frappuccino with espresso, vanilla ice cream, and whiskey liqueur. I admit it, I have a sweet tooth!
This is an interesting link about combinations with coffee.
Coffee with ice cream and liqueur will be way too sweet for me… I feel that it can make me blind if I overdose 🤣
I don’t think if I can even taste something like this.
I understand you because I am not a lover of sweet flavors either. When we ordered this cocktail I shared it with my husband. He drank most of it 🤣, but I was able to enjoy tasting this combination. I confess that curiosity was stronger than me! 😋
I love the presentation!
I have never tried the combination of coffee with ice cream and liquor. Near where I live, they make coffee cocktails that use rum and vodka. I like cocktails and this photograph with that spectacular presentation aroused my curiosity.
Hahaha, I think the trick is to get the food in through the eyes first. When I saw the size of this cocktail I knew I had to share with my husband because it was too much for me. I hope you can try combinations of coffee with liquor or ice cream and tell us about your experience.
That’s such a weird fact to know - that dairy products react with coffee to intoxicate the human palate. I love your baileys frappuccino with espresso, vanilla ice cream, and whiskey liqueur. WoW!
Man has been able to take advantage of the craving for certain foods. Many of these combinations have been random but others are made with every intention to drive our palate crazy.
Love how it looks like!
I'd like to try the combination of coffee, liquor and ice cream too! I hope it tastes and looks good like this one.
Yeah, this is delicious but so you don't get cloying I would recommend smaller portions. This portion is really big size 😄
Hmmmm... I can say that it is great reading your explanation on taking coffee with liquor and coffee with icecream. To be sincere, I have not tried this before and have not seen anyone taking it.
My be I would try it out.
Oh how nice! If you manage to combine coffee with ice cream or liquor, it would be great if you could share your impressions here in the community. I'd love to read your impressions!
I love the care you took to analyze this question! What a clever response, why pick when you can have it all 🤩 brilliant!
Hahaha you make me blush! These discoveries of combining coffee and ice cream at the same time were a stroke of luck. Actually I have barista friends who really like the gastronomic fusion movement and dare to experiment by combining things and from them are born these delicacies suitable only for gourmands 😄
Do I dare? My mouth is already watering! Hahahaha 😂😋😋😋. I want to try them all! Usually when I go to buy an ice cream I ask for coffee, but I have not tried coffee with ice cream, now coffee with brandy yes and it is delicious especially in cold climates!
Wow what a delightful brandy with coffee. At home the "nona" (grandmother) used to drink her espresso with a splash of whiskey and a piece of lemon peel. This had a particular flavor and aroma.
Oh, very well said. I've learned something from this comment you've commented. Trying both is awesome too! From your explanation, I can imagine and think that it's delicious.
These combinations are delicious, but you have to be prepared for the sweet taste. If you don't have a sweet tooth you can just taste a bite of this just for the experience.
Yeah, indeed it is. I too have a sweet tooth which is why I prefer such compared to the latter.
It is definitely the perfect combination. Ice cream and coffee ☕💜
It is delicious! However, a good cup of espresso coffee is also wonderful. This is ambivalent, don't you think? 😄
How informative your comment is! First time I have heard about butyric acid in dairy products and how it enhances the flavors of coffee. Thanks for that:)
And Baileys Frappuccino sounds like something I'd love to try.
Hello @coquicoin, it is good to be able to agree with you in this space.
In the last 40 years there has been a growing interest in culinary chemistry to identify molecules in foods that when combined with each other enhance their flavors and aromas. It is something like achieving the perfect synergy for the delight of all the senses of the diner. Culinary chemistry is a fascinating science that has allowed the development of recipes and foods at an industrial level that are a delight.
I hope you can try these combinations such as frapucino with coffee. If you do, I look forward to hearing about your experience. Thank you very much for your comment.
Culinary chemistry is, without a doubt, an interesting topic.
After all, cooking is much about chemistry. I have tried some combinations of liqueur and coffee and I like them. Although for me an ice cream with coffee is a perfect combination.
You're right! it's an excellent combination 😄
