This is the actual recipe for Ruth's Coffee as served at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Begged the bartender for it and I got it :) I think it's a bit strong, so I would decrease the amount of brandy a little for my taste but I am going to post the recipe as they make it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounce Frangelico
  • 12 ounce bailey's irish cream
  • 1 12 ounces brandy
  • 5 ounces coffee (depending on size of your mug)
  • 2 tablespoons whipped cream


  1. Pour alcohol into a coffee mug, fill to the brim with coffee and top off with some whipped cream.

Yum! We had this for a morning coffee treat, and I decreased the amount of brandy by half. Even so, we thought this was positively a tasty morning beverage. I think this would make an excellent after-dinner drink too, which I would then go with the full 1 1/2 ounces of brandy. Thank you for sharing your recipe, JanuaryBride.

I like how it is potent. I had to do half the drink to fit in a mug like on my photo. But I made it twice LOL I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks JanuaryBride :) Made for Photo tag
