kahlùa mocha iced coffee | www.prettyplainjanes.comWhen it comes to spiking my coffee I am a Baileys Irish Cream girl through and through.  Unfortunately Sticky is obsessed as well so the bottle doesn’t stand a chance at longevity in our home.  Kahlùa on the other hand gets a crinkled nose and “ewe” when suggested so there is almost always a full bottle on hand (why we own one in the first place is a mystery).  Today my iced coffee was screaming for a little something more.  With no Baileys I opted for an open mind, grabbed the Kahlùa and made an already perfect drink into a “heck yeah it’s Friday” treat.

kahlùa mocha iced coffee | www.prettyplainjanes.comI love the look, feel and sound of a cocktail shaker and use it whenever I get the chance.  Better yet is when Sticky does the shaking – there’s just something about a good looking man making a tasty cocktail.  I like it.  I like it a lot.
