You've probably had your fair share of coffee drinks, such as Americanos, cappuccinos, flat whites, and even mochas. But have you tried any of these unusual coffee beverages, such as egg coffee or wine coffee? 

Plain coffee is sort of a mixed feeling, and some of us really need something to make it less harsh and sweeter. However, cream and sugar aren't for everyone. Some individuals cannot begin their day without a freshly made cup of coffee. They are so obsessed with coffee that they refer to themselves as "coffee addicts." And we are all too aware of this. 

Drinking your daily cups of coffee, on the other hand, isn't always a negative habit. Scientists claim that it is, on the contrary, healthful. Your regular cup of coffee gives you more than simply an energy boost. 

There are so many weird recipes that many of us have never heard of or not even tried but we got that for you today, we have found 13 weird but interesting coffee that you must try!

Here Are Our 13 Strangest Yet Interesting Coffee Drinks You Must Try

1. Scandinavian Egg Coffee

1. Scandinavian Egg Coffee

This Scandinavian-style brew is popular in Minnesota (it's even served at the state fair).  

Despite the name, it's not a one-bowl breakfast: Mixing an egg into brewed coffee in a pan is simply a technique to remove bitterness while also clarifying the liquid and providing a smooth texture. 

If you want to give it a shot, here's how to do it: Simply combine one raw, gently beaten egg with roughly 1 1/2 cups ground coffee and 1/2 cup cold water to form a sticky paste.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups cold filtered water
  • 1 cup ground coffee of choice
  • 1 egg (with shell) plus 1/3 cup water

How to make it 

  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. 
  • In a separate dish, add the ground coffee 
  • Use egg with shell (give the shell a thorough cleaning beforehand, just to be safe) and 1/3 cup water
  • Allow the egg mixture to sit while the water heats up.
  • When the water is boiling, add the coffee-omelet goo. When you do this, it will froth a little. ( Don't be alarmed: this is quite natural!)
  • Turn off the heat and take it from the burner as soon as it returns to a boil. Allow it to sit for 6-7 minutes, or more if you like it very strongly. Because the hot water cooks the eggs, the coffee grounds clump together and float in odd-looking pieces.
  • Add the cream and taste it before adding any sweetener...you could find that you like it without the sugar!

Naturally, the enzymes in the egg will neutralize the acid in the roasted coffee beans. 

It has no effect on the flavor of the coffee, but it does make it extremely smooth. We discovered adding sweetness to soften the impact of the acidic aftertaste, regardless of how wonderfully brewed it was.

When you brew your coffee with an egg, it gives it a smooth, mellow flavor that is robust but not overpowering.

2. Kopi Gu Yu

2. Kopi Gu Yu

This coffee is roasted, brewed, then drunk with butter! People in Asian nations such as Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia feel that butter helps to create a lively and rich flavor in coffee.

This coffee is typically served with condensed milk on the bottom of the mug and a slice of butter on top. Kopi Gu You translates to "Coffee Butter" in Hokkien.

The addition of a slab of butter to coffee (with condensed milk) is said to have been adopted by Hainanese coffee shops in the 1930s to give it a caramelized flavor and soothe the harsh notes of Robusta coffee beans.

Even while most coffee shops still use Robusta beans or a combination of Arabica and Robusta, most do not add butter to their coffee. Instead, the beans are roasted in sugar, butter, margarine, or lard, which caramelizes their surface and gives them their mellowed flavor character.

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups of coffee
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • and 1–2 tablespoons of oil.

How to make it 

  • 2 cups of coffee, brewed
  • Mix in 1–2 teaspoons of oil.
  • If you don't consume normal butter, use 1–2 tablespoons unsalted butter, or ghee, a form of clarified butter with less lactose.
  • In a blender, combine all of the ingredients for 20–30 seconds, or until the mixture resembles a frothy latte.

Is it safe to consume Bulletproof coffee?

Overall, Bulletproof coffee may be beneficial to certain people, particularly those on a ketogenic diet who do not have high cholesterol levels. Bulletproof coffee, when combined with a balanced diet, may help you lose weight and boost your energy levels.

If you discover that this morning drink enhances your well-being and quality of life, the lower nutritional load may be worth it. 

To be safe, if you drink Bulletproof coffee on a daily basis, you should get your blood markers checked to ensure you are not increasing your risk of heart disease and other diseases.

3. Kentucky Coffee

3. Kentucky Coffee

Have you ever thought about mixing coffee with alcohol? You know, we sometimes think of something weird yet attractive, something interesting that we never tried before. 

Think Irish coffee, but from the American South. Kentucky is famous for its bourbon, so what better whiskey to pair with coffee? Try Kentucky Coffee for the greatest coffee and bourbon combination.

This Kentucky coffee is an after-dinner drink that is smoother, sweeter, and more subtle relative to classic Irish coffee, which is made with freshly brewed coffee, sugar, cream, and whiskey. Whatever brand of bourbon you choose, whether Maker's Mark or others, will work well in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 8 sugar cubes or 8 granulated sugar teaspoons
  • 12 tbsp. high-quality bourbon
  • 4 cups strong, steaming coffee, freshly brewed
  • 1/2 cup gently whipped heavy cream

How to make it 

  • In each of four 12-ounce coffee mugs, place two sugar cubes (or four tablespoons of sugar).
  • To each mug, add 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) of bourbon. Muddle the sugar and bourbon together with a muddler or the end of a heavy long-handled spoon until the sugar dissolves.
  • Fill each mug halfway with hot coffee. Place the back of a clean, dry teaspoon against the inside of the glass and slowly pour the thickened cream down the spoon and into the glass.

Alcohol with coffee?

Bourbon is an excellent companion to coffee. The whiskey frequently has strong vanilla and caramel overtones, and some also have cinnamon and spice aromas. 

The strong taste and inherent spiciness of Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon and the brand's American Honey Liqueur are called for in this recipe. It's an all-American spiked coffee that honors the finest of Kentucky bourbon. (Easy Kentucky Coffee Recipe)

If you like, top the drink with whipped cream to mellow the taste a little. However, when left alone, it's incredibly powerful, especially if you pick a robustly brewed dark roast or bourbon barrel-aged coffee beans.

The Cold Brew Sour is an adaptation of the whiskey sour. It's crisp and tangy, as well as cold and refreshing. The tart/sour flavor is nicely balanced by the sweetness of the coffee, resulting in a drink that many people will appreciate.
