Let’s face it, the older you get the harder it is for you to spend a night on the town after a long day of work. While your friends are downing back tequila shots like their lives depend on it, your stuck in their rented living room trying to keep your eyes open.
You know you can’t cancel because it’s Sarah’s night to let her freak-flag fly, and frankly if you let her go alone, you’ll probably end up on the next episode of ‘Buzzfeed Unsolved’. So there you are, in her living room as she drunkenly tries to squeeze into a dress that fit her in high school and you’re realizing you’re way to sober to deal with this.
Okay, so I may be talking from my own personal experience. But through this, I’ve learned the best boozy coffee recipe that not only gives you the caffeine kick you need but also has a healthy dose of alcohol that will help you get through the sloppy night.
Boozy Peppermint Lattes not only taste like Christmas in a cup, which is appropriate year round for a Christmas lover like me, but they also are super easy to make.
Boozy Peppermint Latte
Any coffee of your choosing (We use Nespresso capsules)
2% Frothed Milk (You can also use any other milk of your choosing)
2 tbs. of your favourite hot chocolate mix
1 shot of Original Baileys
1 shot of Smirnoff Peppermint Vodka
- Brew coffee and place it into your coffee mug. Only about 1/4 of a cup of coffee is needed in this recipe, especially if it is espresso.
- Froth your milk. We find that 2% milk works best for this.
- While the milk is frothing, add both shots of Baileys and vodka to your coffee and blend well.
- Add the milk and hot chocolate mix, blending all of the ingredients together.
