Despite the many times that I have crossed my fingers that Spring will come early this year, the air is still filled with bitter cold. Cozied up in bed with a warm drink seems to be thee only way to spend these (hopefully) last Winter nights. I've been experimenting with different combinations of liquors, teas, and coffees recently and my favorite combo is what I call a "Coffee Nut Nightcap." A smooth mix of fresh brewed coffee, Frangelico, Disaronno, milk, and sweet sugar, this hot cocktail is sure to please during these especially cold nights!
- 2 cups fresh coffee
- 2 shots Frangelico (or other hazelnut liquor)
- 2 shots Disaronno (or other almond liquor)
- Milk (to taste)
- Vanilla syrup (to taste)
- Candy garnishes of choice (optional)
1: Mix all liquid ingredients together in a pitcher
2: Serve in mugs, garnish with candy, enjoy!
I like to pick up some of my favorite edible garnishes at Marini's Candy Shop, a local sweet boutique. The orange and brown candy canes are actually flavored like root beer!
