Red-Eyed Alex

I am not throwing away my shot!

Sometimes your morning coffee just won’t wake you up, no matter how much you plead with it. One sip of this Alexander Hamilton inspired drink, however, and you’ll be passionately smashing every single expectation. Drink it iced to get it into your bloodstream faster. (Though it’s good hot, too.)

Take your morning coffee up a notch with this twist on a traditional Red Eye. Pairs well with an ego the size of New Jersey. And animal crackers.

This coffee is highly caffeinated, so don’t drink it all at once, unless you’re used to that much caffeine. Please don’t be stupid.


If you don’t have an espresso maker, just order a “red eye” from your local coffee shop and add the syrup yourself.


  1. Combine the coffee and espresso in a cup with ice.
  2. Add the syrup. Stir.
  3. Add creamer if you so desire.
  4. Enjoy!
