I invented this drink after a VERY long day…I got up early…it seemed like my day was spinning before I left the house. When I got home late in the afternoon, I was feeling a bit drained. But Hey?? What do Seattleites turn to when we are felling a bit run down?? UM HM COFFEE… but how could I “Thirst Quest” it up, I asked?? Here’s how I did it:
- 1 1/2 Shots Vodka (Your favorite brand)
- 1 Shot Kahlua
- 1 Can Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso and Cream 6.5 fl ozs. (premium coffee drink..oooh ya! this is good stuff)
- 1 Shot Milk
- 1 Shot Strong Brewed Coffee – Cooled (I used what I had left from the morning that I didn’t drink)
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice..and shake, shake, shake..
Then, pour into a brandy snifter, or any wide mouthed glass.
Marvel at it’s frothy goodness…sprinkle a dash of cinnamon, a dash of Cayenne Pepper & a little grated Chocolate (YES..you read that right!! TRUST ME, I’m a Mixologist)
This little number will perk you up out of any funk you may be in….It worked for me!!!
Virgin Version –
Don’t add the alcohol…add a little chocolate or coffee syrup (in place of the Kahlua).
To Make it Special –
Add a few chocolate covered espresso beans (a Seattle Favorite)
