Do I even have to ask? 🙂 Coffee! Especially when I remember the night before to prep the “Ol Faithful” coffee pot to auto brew. I tell ya the days I wake up and there is no coffee I scold my night self for not thinking of me…
The winter days are plentiful here in our neck of the woods, which means the hot beverages of winter are always welcome! So we wanted to share a few with you. Enjoy! And share with us know your favorite winter beverage!
Molasses will bring a strong and wonderful flavour to your cup of coffee, along with a dash of good Caribbean rum.
Serve hot with whipped cream.
- 3 cups hot coffee
- 6 tbs molasses
- 6 tbs dark rum
- Whipped cream
Heat coffee and molasses in a saucepan until molasses is dissolved. Put 1 tbs of rum in each mug, and pour coffee over. Top with whipped cream. Serves 6
You can really taste the rum in this one, great for a crowd. Simmering with spices for a few hours will build up the flavour of cinnamon and cloves.
- 8 cups hot coffee
- 1 cup dark rum
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 12 cloves, whole
Heat everything through over low heat and simmer for about 2 hours. Serves 8-10
My Absolute Favorite!
Old Fashioned Hot Buttered Rum recipe
Now I know what your thinking… not all of these have Coffee in them but we have to be open to all drinks, or we wouldn’t be the adventurous people we are. 😀 We love putting a scoop of the Rum batter in our morning coffee. It is fantastic and delicious. It is a great treat on a cold winter morning, or after dinner for a dessert coffee…That reminds me… I think we still have some Batter in the freezer! Woo Hoo! Looks like my lunch coffee will have a little kick to it! 🙂
Happy Monday Everyone!
