We hope you are well! We are doing our best over here but often find ourselves losing track of time, wondering what day it is and giving our Keurig a workout. No wonder our sleep schedule is screwed up! This week’s post was inspired from one of those cups of coffee. Caffeinated boozy drinks are not new and offer a ‘best of both worlds’ solution to the hum-drum of this new normal; caffeine to keep you motivated & alcohol to take the edge off these uncertain times. We are pairing this cocktail with our version of the current viral sensation, whipped coffee or the top half of a Dalgona Coffee. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!

This recipe makes 2 drinks. Let's get started!
1/4 cup Instant Coffee
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Hot Water
1/2 oz. Kahlua
1-2 tbsp chocolate shavings (optional)
1.5 oz. Brandy
1.5 oz Grand Marnier
1.5 oz Kahlua
8-10 oz Hot Coffee
1 Orange Peel
2 Heat Safe Mugs or Glasses
You'll also need a peeler, bar spoon and lighter.
In a bowl add:
Instant Coffee (1/4 cup)
Sugar (1/4 cup)
Hot Water (1/4 cup)
Kahlua (1/2 oz)
Using an electric mixer, mix until fluffy (about 2-5 minutes)
If you don't have an electric mixer, you can whisk by hand. This will take 8-15 minutes and your arm might fall off, but its worth it!
Put a lid on your bowl and set aside for now.
Any extra you have left over can be stored in the fridge for a week or so.
Shave your chocolate and also set that aside.
