I’m knee deep in holiday gift giving and mentally preparing for Christmas this year… because not only will I have the company of own family, but my in-laws will be joining us as well. It’s a Gilmore-Stubblefield Christmas in Chicago. Oh boy! Joint family holidays aren’t really something you hear about too often and I can only imagine why…
Instead of panicking, I’m spiking my coffee. Ah-ha! Drinking at all times, the silver lining of holidays. Spiked coffee would also make a great welcome cocktail for holiday parties; equal parts upper and downer is a great way to keep everyone’s emotions at bay. It might help avoid that one drunk relative that tells everyone how they really feel…and it isn’t through rose-colored glasses. Cheers to an emotionally stable holiday season!
Here’s what you need:
* cold pressed coffee
* coffee ice cubes
* Rum Chata
To decorate the rim of the glass:
1. Take coffee and pour in ice trays, wait until they are frozen.
2. Take the agave nectar and put on the rim of your glassware. I took an unused paint brush and used it to coat the rim with agave nectar, the I put the sprinkles in a bowl and dipped the glass it.
3. Next, place the coffee ice cubes in your cup
4. Pour 3 parts cold pressed coffee 0r 2 parts, depending how strong you like it, to one part Rum Chata.
