Forget caffeine and booze combinations — think coffee cocktails

At the same time that packaged beverages that blend caffeine and alcohol are either being banned by states (like Kansas banning canned drinks like Four Loko) or under stringent regulatory scrutiny, the classic after-dinner coffee drink is having a revival.

Nation’s Restaurant News reports that “(restaurateurs) are refreshing the formulas and service styles of these popular and profitable after-dinner drinks.”

According to the article, “liquor-laced coffees have a long history as pleasant pick-me-ups and liquid desserts sipped at the table.”
