Meeting With Food Suppliers

About a year ago, I started paying closer attention to the quality of the food in our restaurant. Instead of ordering from the cheapest vendor, we started meeting with different vendors to find the best fit for us. We were able to find an incredible business that really understood our needs. They also offered incredible prices on top-of-the-line foods, and it was really great to work with them. They helped us to completely renovate our menu, and we were really impressed with everything that they did for us. This blog is all about meeting with food suppliers and understanding how to streamline your restaurant.

Four Coffee Cocktails To Serve At Your Next Party

by Scarlett Newman

What could be better than a cup of coffee at the end of a big meal? A coffee-based cocktail, of course! Whether you prefer warm or iced coffee cocktails, one of these delicious recipes is sure to appeal to your taste buds.

Grown-Up Mocha

Rich, chocolatey flavor and soft vanilla undertones make this warm coffee beverage a true indulgence. Serve it alongside vanilla ice cream for a contrast in temperature and color.

Ingredients (for one drink):

  • 4 ounces hot brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate shavings
  • 1 ounce vanilla-flavored vodka
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla-flavored coffee syrup
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

Combine the coffee, chocolate shavings, coffee syrup, and white sugar in a mug. Stir until the chocolate and sugar are completely melted. Add the heavy cream and the vodka, stir, and serve.

Hazelnut Espresso Martinis

Ice cold and refreshing, this martini is the perfect beverage for a hot summer evening. Serve it with fresh raspberries and pound cake for a complete dessert course.

Ingredients (for two martinis):

  • 1 shot espresso
  • 3 shots espresso-flavored vodka
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnut-flavored coffee syrup
  • whole coffee beans (for garnish)
  • hazelnuts (for garnish)

Pour the espresso, vodka and coffee syrup into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until moisture begins to bead up on the outside of the shaker, and then strain into two martini glasses. Top each drink with a few coffee beans and hazelnuts as a garnish, and serve.

Irish Coffee Shake

This drink is a cocktail and dessert all wrapped up into one. The recipe makes enough for about four people, making it perfect for a dinner party or barbecue.

Ingredients (for four servings):

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 cup Irish creme liqueur
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 shot Irish whiskey

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick to blend thoroughly, add a little extra milk and then keep blending. Divide between four glasses, and serve with thick straws.

Hot Peppermint Coffee

The peppermint flavor of this hot cocktail will remind you of the holidays. It's wonderful paired with chocolate cake or cookies.

Ingredients (for one cocktail):

  • 6 ounces brewed coffee
  • 1 ounce peppermint-flavored vodka
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla-flavored coffee syrup
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup
  • 1 miniature candy cane (for garnish)

Combine all of the ingredients in a tall mug, and stir to combine. Hook the candy cane over the rim of the mug, and serve.
