Nitro Irish Coffee Shakerato

Coffee can be so much more than a reason to rise and shine. It is true that a cup of joe in the morning can help you feel more awake and less tired. That stimulation is a result of caffeine being absorbed into your bloodstream; from there, traveling to your brain, where it blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter, resulting in a stimulant effect. This mood boost is great in the AM, and quite nice at other times as well — like in a cocktail.
