This coffee recipe will surely give you a little energy boost, even if you don’t necessarily choose to enjoy it during the holidays. You can either add cognac, whiskey, brandy or any other alcohol that you deem worthy of mixing in this beverage. Irish cream liqueur, coffee-flavored liqueur or rum, for instance, can also be used as an ingredient for this type of coffee. I’m pretty sure a version without booze would still be delicious, though – I have to admit – it really adds a little special something to your average cup of coffee. No matter the precise list of ingredients you choose, it still is the perfect after-dinner beverage.
1. Make coffee. Meanwhile, heat the milk in the microwave for about 1 minutes and 30 seconds.
2. In a large mug, pour the hot coffee. Add the alcohol, maple syrup and warm milk.
3. Serve with whipped cream and sprinkle with maple sugar (optional).
