Last year we released our Caffè Corretto liqueur in collaboration with Elixir Craft Spirits. We've enjoyed developing some tasty cocktails using this intense coffee liqueur. These cocktails have been such a hit with our customers, we thought we would share them with you to try at your next get-together.
