Hot coffee drinks

Coffee drinks are highly underrated in the alcohol circuit. It's pure, chemical engineering genius: caffeine and alcohol. These have been the driving forces of civilization. The building blocks to our very existence! Maybe not, but coffee drinks do provide a nice pep in your step. They can be best enjoyed after a day of skiing, in the morning, or after dinner. No fear, for if you are scared of a little Irish in your coffee, there are plenty of other options.

      I love the combination of coffee and Kalhua so I'm sure to try the recipes that contains Kalhua. I must also say, I have never thought of using hot chocolate to make an alcoholic beverage, so, I'll try some of them as well.
