Delicious Turkish Coffee Recipes For Easter

Easter is right around the corner and with that, we have put together a list of our favourite recipes that include Turkish coffee or traditional Turkish delight. In this article, we will be giving you three recipes you can make this Easter, whether you are entertaining your family and friends or having a quiet Bank Holiday weekend. 


1. Turkish Coffee with a Twist

If for Easter, you are looking to enjoy a coffee with a chocolatey twist, we have the perfect recipe for you. Made with traditional Turkish coffee, this drink is perfect for an Easter celebration.  To make this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Ozerlat Turkish coffee
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Sugar (optional)
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Chocolate shavings (optional)

How to make this delicious coffee with a twist: 

  • Make a traditional cup of Turkish coffee:
    • Measure cold water into a cezve or ibrik, then add your Turkish coffee (and sugar if desired), without stirring. In this step, you will also need to add cocoa powder and ground cinnamon.
    • Heat your coffee over a low-medium heat. You will know if you are doing something right if foam forms. 
    • Then, remove from the heat before it starts boiling. 
    • Pour your coffee into a coup before the grounds begin to settle. 
  • Finally, top with whipped cream and sprinkle chocolate shavings for an extra indulgent touch.


2. Turkish Coffee with Mint

Mint and chocolate, anyone? Mint has a refreshing, cool flavour. In comparison to the deep and rich taste of chocolate, these flavours go extremely well together. So, whilst you are eating your Easter eggs, you can also sip on this Turkish coffee recipe with mint. To make this tasty recipe, you will need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1-2 tablespoons finely ground Turkish coffee
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Sugar (optional)

How to make this Turkish coffee recipe with mint:

  • In a cezve, you will firstly combine water, Turkish coffee, and a few fresh mint leaves. During this stage, you can also add sugar to your taste. 
  • Similar to the recipe above, you will then place your cezve over low to medium heat.
  • Do not let the coffee boil and stir the coffee gently until the grounds dissolve completely.
  • Again, you know you will be doing something right when the coffee starts to froth and rise. Then, remove it from the heat.
  • Pour the coffee into cups, allowing the foam to form on top and let it sit for a moment to allow the grounds to settle before serving.
  • You can serve this coffee with some mint leaves placed on top for that extra minty flavour. 


3. Turkish Delight Cocktail

If coffee isn’t your go-to drink, for an afterhours Easter drink, why not try a Turkish Delight cocktail? Made with a mix of traditional Turkish vodka and Turkish delight, this cocktail is perfect for those who have a sweet tooth. Treat yourself this Bank Holiday weekend with this serve. You will need:

  • 60ml Turkish vodka
  • 30ml rose water
  • 15ml simple syrup
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Turkish delight for garnish 
  • Rose petals for garnish (optional)

How to make this yummy cocktail:

  • Firstly, you will want to prepare your glass. We would recommend a chilled cocktail glass. To achieve this, you will want to place it in the freezer for a few minutes before making the cocktail. 
  • Optionally, you can rim the glass with sugar or crushed pistachios for an added Easter treat. 
  • Next, you will want to mix all of your ingredients in a cocktail shaker.  Combine the Turkish raki (or vodka), rose water, simple syrup, and lemon juice. To make sure it’s extra chill, add a handful of ice cubes to the shaker.
  • Shake all of your ingredients for 15-20 seconds and then thoroughly mix the ingredients. 
  • Strain all the ingredients into your cocktail class. 
  • You can garnish your Easter cocktail with a small piece of Turkish delight or a fresh rose petal for an elegant touch.
