If there is 1 thing I enjoy as much as BBQ, it’s a good cup of coffee. I know, you’re probably saying what does coffee have to do with BBQ. Well, a lot! For starters there are some great steak and brisket recipes that use coffee. Then there is my favorite, coffee the drink.
Coming out of winter, where it’s been mild but still chilly in Northern Ohio, I often make a large pot of coffee to drink while bbqing on those cold mornings as opposed to my summertime beverage of choice, an ice-cold beer or chilled vodka. I’ll do flavored coffee sometimes but one of my favorites is a twist on something my Dad use to drink from time to time. He used Butterscotch but I use Kahlua. Here is the recipe…
- 6oz of STRONG fresh brewed coffee
- 2 Tbsp spiced rum (I use Captain Morgans)
- 1/4 Cup Kahlua Liqueur (my dad would use butterscotch liqueur)
- whipped cream for garnish
Step 1: Pour the rum and Kahlua in a mug. Fill the mug with hot coffee. Top with whipped cream. Enjoy
This is also a nice drink for your adult functions.
