There comes a time in every man's life when he needs to both a) drink a bunch of booze, and b) stay awake after drinking said "bunch of booze." Finally helping you get all the way to the end of your Legally Blonde drinking game (shots whenever Elle wears pink!!!): the five greatest coffee cocktails ever assembled.

And yes, they're all totally makeable at home:

The Bacon Maple Syrup by Tyler Voelker, Urban Farmer
If you took a pancake breakfast, removed the pancakes, and then added 1.5oz of rum and 1oz of Calisaya liqueur, you'd have this drink, which combines that boozy pair with .75oz of maple syrup (sticky!), tops with coffee, floats with frothed milk, and garnishes with a cured bacon skewer. Naturally.

The Cream Car Bomb by Mark Brinker, Barrelhouse Flat
Equal parts cold-brewed coffee (2oz) and booze (1oz cognac, 1oz bourbon), this guy's shaken vigorously with half-ouncers of Averna and orange Curacao, with a side shot of sweetened cream you can Jager-bomb into your drink. Also important: it's garnished with a cinnamon stick THAT'S ON FIRE.
