This Autumn “Caffe Breve” Mocktail is the perfect sweet and creamy beverage dessert to serve up after dinner during the fall and holiday season. It only takes a few minutes to combine all of the ingredients!
What’s a Caffe Breve?
If you’re unfamiliar with a Caffe Breve / Cafe Breve / Breve Coffee / Breve Latte, it’s a beverage containing espresso and steamed half & half and pronounced “cah-fay Brev-ay”! This fall mocktail, by no means a replica, is simply inspired by the forever delicious pairing of coffee and half & half.
I recommend a very strongly brewed coffee for the most flavorful drink, but feel free to experiment.
In more of a cocktail mood instead? Simply add in 1 oz of vodka at the end. Easy!
Brew the coffee ahead! To save time the day of serving this mocktail, brew and chill the coffee the day before. It makes for a nice quick and easy assembly.
