Drink of the Day: Keoke Coffee

September 26, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Now that we are getting into the cooler temperatures, I want to share my favorite coffee drink of all time:  the Keoke Coffee.  The slight bite of brandy to warm you from the inside out, along with the sweetness of Kahlua and Creme de Cacao gives you a well-rounded treat to enjoy on those cool and brisk evenings.

After spending the day winterizing the yard – raking leaves and doing your final mow – you can treat yourself to one, or maybe two, of these to bring you back to room temp.  Nothing like a good coffee drink to get your blood pumping again!

While I sit here writing this, I am thinking of maybe making myself one of these to reward myself for accomplishing another Drink of the Day.  Why not?  It is Saturday and college football is on.  Sounds like a plan to me!  Time to start another pot of coffee…

Method:  Pour the first two ingredients in, to measure, in an Irish Coffee mug.  Add coffee, filling to about a half inch from the rim.  Lie two straws on top of the rim and form a “v” with the two straws.  While holding onto the straws, add whipped cream.  Pour Dark Creme de Cacao lightly on the whipped cream.
