Eclectic Recipes How to Make a Christmas Coffee Cocktail for the Holidays

Christmas Coffee Cocktail


We’ve been drinking a ridiculous amount of coffee lately, and it’s not because it’s chilly outside. Here in central Florida we’ve been running our A/C most days because of the persistent heat that just won’t seem to leave. I’ve actually found a love for coffee (or maybe it’s just a new addiction) in the past year.

Besides just drinking different coffees with all those amazing flavored creamers, I’ve also been experimenting with coffee cocktails like this one. This is my Christmas Coffee Cocktail. There’s a delicious mixture of 4 liqueurs in it, so it’s incredibly tasty and very strong.



Christmas Coffee Cocktail


4 oz strong coffee
1 1/2 oz amaretto liqueur
1 1/2 oz coffee liqueur
1 oz butterscotch schnapps
1 oz creme de cocoa
fresh whipped cream
grated chocolate, for garnish


Combine strong coffee and liqueurs in a glass. Stir to combine and top with fresh whipped cream. Garnish with grated chocolate.

Serve warm or over ice.

To make this fabulous little cocktail, I used my new toy, The Keurig Vue® Brewing System. I’ll admit, I was one of the first ones to jump on the single cup brewing system, another brand years ago, and it was terrible. Actually awful.  So I was really apprehensive about trying another brand. But, when I heard about the new Keurig Vue® Brewing System, I knew I had to try it

Here’s some of the features I just loved about this machine:

Brew Stronger – Custom Brew Technology™ allows you to brew your coffee at the “strong” setting

Brew Bigger – Want to fill your travel mug? Now you can with  Vue®packs specially formulated to brew a bigger cup with the strength you expect.

Brew Hotter – Want 195°? You got it! The average drip coffee maker brews around 180°. The best coffee is brewed at 195°-205°. This machine has a heat setting that goes up to 197°, making that coffeehouse temperature attainable at home.

Brew More – In addition to coffee, tea, hot cocoa and iced beverages, Vue® brews delicious café beverages.

You can find the Keurig® Vue® V700 Brewing System online and have it shipped for free. You can also find it at many retailers, including Target.
