What's This?

Many of us will start the New Year with a hangover. You could try one of our tips on preventing a hangover, but if you happen to have skipped that one; you use one of our hangover cures or could start your day with a little “hair of the dog”. What exactly do I mean? A bit of caffeine spiked with just a little alcohol to lessen the pain of the morning after:

Bucacafe: 1 oz sambuca, 1 cup espresso, 3 coffee beans. Put the sambuca in a snifter and add the three coffee beans. Prepare the espresso. Take a sip of your espresso and then one of your buca. Chew on the coffee beans throughout the process.

Cafe a L’orange: 1 oz Grand Marnier (or triple sec), 1 cup of coffee and whipped cream, milk chocolate orange. Mix the hot chocolate and Grand Marnier together. Top with whipped cream. Serve with milk chocolate orange slice on the side.

Coffee Stinger: This one is incredibly festive. 1 oz dark creme de cacao, 1/2 oz peppermint schnapps, 2 oz hot chocolate, 3 oz hot coffee & green sugar for garnish. Mix the creme de cacao and schnapps, add the hot chocolate & coffee and mix together. Sprinkle with colored green sugar. 

Irish Coffee: You will need 1 1/2 oz of Irish Whiskey, 1 tsp brown sugar, 5 oz hot coffee & whipped cream. Mix the sugar into the whiskey. Then incorporate the coffee (the stronger the better). Top with whipped cream.

Jamaican Coffee: 1 oz Jamaican rum, 1 oz coffee liqueur (Tia Maria is Jamaican), 6 oz of hot coffee, whipped cream and allspice. Stir together the rum, liqueur and coffee. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle a little all spice for garnish.

Mexican Coffee: You will need 1/2 oz gold tequila, 3/4 oz of coffee liqueur (Kahlua is Mexican), 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 cup of coffee & whipped cream. Mix the liquors together with the sugar. Add the coffee & stir until the sugar is dissolved. Top with whipped cream.

Simple Spiked Coffee: For this one you will need 1/2 oz of creme de cacao, 1/2 oz vodka, 1 tsp brown sugar and a cup of espresso. Mix the creme de cacao and vodka. Add the sugar and coffee and mix until well blended.

**As always, drink moderately and if you are under age, DON’T Drink.
