When 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.
Yes, that is sweetened condensed milk and yes I am using it in addition to dark chocolate syrup and alcohol. There may be half & half in this too. You could go lighter on these ingredients but to be frank it won’t be nearly as good.
I 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.
You could go even more devilish with this and add whip cream with a dash of cocoa powder or cinnamon on top. I am going to be a good girl and forgo the extra calories (or maybe I just don’t have whip cream on hand).
