Boozy Winter Coffee #SizzlingSips

Sizzling Sips

I had a tough time thinking of a name for this post, so I decided to call it what it is. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Boozy Winter Coffee.

Boozy Winter Coffee - a grown up coffee with gingerbread Kahlua and Baileys Irish Cream.

With the exception of one week, we have had a fairly mild winter here in Northern BC but I know winter isn’t over yet. It’s usually January/February when the weather hits the unGodly temperatures of -30c and I’m never prepared for it. The only positive spin I can put on these frigid temperatures is that I can stay in my cozy sweats and drink a warm coffee or hot cocoa.

Last year I discovered that if I added Gingerbread Kahlua and Salted Caramel Baileys to my coffee that it tasted like heaven. I called it Christmas coffee and had every intention of blogging about it before Christmas 2016.

Well, here we are, it’s January 9th. I think I missed the mark.

So, for now, we’re calling it Boozy Winter Coffee. Gingerbread Kahlua is only available during the Christmas season, so if you can’t find it in your local liquor store, regular Kahlua works just as well (or you could try for peppermint, that would be great too). I haven’t found Salted Caramel Baileys since last winter, so I used regular ol’ Baileys for this version.
