As the holidays approach faster than a speeding bullet (it’s not yet Halloween and I’ve seen Christmas Decor in the stores), you may not be calling for Calgon as much as reaching for your glass of wine and cup of coffee – interchangeably within the same hour of course. To give you the best of both worlds and a little cozy holiday feel, here are a few Coffee Cocktails to get you through the holiday season with pep and zenful ease;) These coffee cocktails brought to us by TheSpir.it would be fun to serve at your holiday get togethers as a little warm pick-me-up. Here are the recipes for 2 that I can’t wait to try:
