Boozy Coffee; Mommy’s Little Helper

It is precisely this time of year when I like to gather with my Mommy friends and indulge in a little coffee talk (Cawfee Tawk if you remember the old SNL skit). Incidentally the only thing that makes that good coffee and great company better is….. Liquor! When mother nature brings on the cold, I like to combat her with boozy coffee. Nothing takes the chill off a long day of skiing better and it’s great for an evening by the fire after the kids are tucked in. Here are some of my favorite recipes:

3 oz Honey Jack Daniels Whiskey
1 oz. brown sugar simple syrup
3 oz. coffee
Cream
Garnish: whipped cream

To make brown sugar simple syrup, mix equal parts hot water and brown sugar until sugar is dissolved. Combine whiskey, simple syrup, coffee, and cream. Garnish with whipped cream.

2 oz. Patron XO Coffee Liqueur
½ oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

Coffee
Garnish: whipped cream and shaved chocolate

This one isn’t a coffee drink, but I love chocolate mint. You can use peppermint schnapps too, but Rumplemintz has more kick.

2 oz Rumplemintz

Hot chocolate

Classics:

Mexican Coffee 

 1 oz Tequila
2 oz Kahlua
Coffee
Garnish w/ whipped cream

Nutty Irishman

2 oz Bailey’s
1 oz Frangelico liqueur
Coffee
Garnish with Whipped Cream

 

Irish Coffee

2 ozBaileys
1 oz Jameson Irish Whiskey
Coffee
Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle nutmeg

 

Bushwhacker

1 oz cream of coconut
1 oz Kahlua
1 oz Malibu
1 oz Baileys
1 oz Vanilla vodka
1 oz amaretto liqueur
Coffee

 

Obviously you can play with the ounces that you put in to taste, Lord knows I never measure them out. If you don’t want to invest in full bottles of these liquors  buy the nips. It will force you to pace yourself too. Careful because some of these will really kick you in the crotch! And remember, even though it looks like coffee and smells like coffee, I don’t recommend starting your day with any of these… unless you’re on vacation, then have at it. Bottoms up bitches.

          Well you set a TERRIBLE example! And what gets me is that I’ve gone against alcohol for YEARS online, writing tons of blogs, thousands of comments, even a BOOK on why we shouldn’t drink alcohol or smoke pot! Alcohol is a DRUG! Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right. A casual booze drinker is no better then a casual pot smoker, except that they’re aren’t breaking the law! I type my fingers to the bone online, thinking that I’ve made a difference in the world and that people know not to use alcohol anymore. You were supposed to be embarrassed and ashamed and THANK me for helping you realize why alcohol is a DRUG! But you didn’t understand at all!! Oh I am so upset I am just shaking. OH I JUST WANT TO CRY! I can’t believe that we live in a world like this. I will never get the pot smokers to understand why it’s wrong and immature to use drugs, as long as people think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol!!! And not to mention the fact that I’m a convert to the Mormon church and we are taught why mind-altering drugs like alcohol, coffee, tea, pot, and cigarettes are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. It is GREAT for us to know these things!!!! It HELPS us!!!!! I thought I was so well known online! I prefer anything over the legalization of marijuana. Rape, animal abuse, child abuse, incest, ANYTHING. Children should do drugs, not adults. My point is, you adults should be well past the age where you’d want to use a mind-altering drug to get high, have fun, get “buzzed”, relax and unwind, etc. Coffee is mind-altering enough, add booze to it and it’s even worse! People need to set an example and not use mind-altering drugs like marijuana and alcohol!

            I hope you realize you sound like a crazy person. Why should I be ashamed because of you? Please find a hobby to occupy your time instead of berating complete strangers

              AAAAARGGGGHH OH YOU PEOPLE ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!! You are terrible!!!!!! You can’t drink alcohol, even in moderation responsibly. OH I AM SO UPSET! I hate you! I dislike you. I don’t like you. You can’t drink alcohol, coffee, or tea! I drink milk, water, flavored water, and juice!! So that’s all that you should drink! Follow my example! Why doesn’t anyone chastise you or the crazy woman that wrote this post and has wine in her name for using alcohol! WHY DO I HAVE TO BE THE ONLY ONE? What is wrong with you? We also can’t use profanity, be immodest, “play with ourselves”, or other bad things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why doesn’t this bother anyone?
