Monte Cristo

Recipe by Maurice BeaverCuisine: Hot Cocktail
Prep time





The Monte Cristo is delicious any time of year, however, I find it tastes best during the Christmas season, due to the festive citrus flavours of Grand Marnier.


  • 1 oz. Kahlua Coffee Liqueur

  • 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier Orange Liqueur

  • 6 oz. freshly brewed coffee

  • Whipped Cream


  • Preheat your Glass or Mug by filling with warm water and Rim Glass or Mug with sugar (optional)
  • Add Kahlua and Grand Marnier to a heat safe glass with a handle or a mug
  • Fill with hot coffee, leaving some room for Whipped Cream at the top
  • Top with whipped cream when ready to serve (the cream melts fast so don’t add it too soon)


  • This beverage is hot! – so it requires a glass meant for hot beverages.
