This Christmas coffee cocktail is quick and easy to make and perfect for enjoying around the holidays and on Christmas morning too! It contains a mixture of delicious liqueurs that give it a wonderful taste. You can  also add vodka or rum to this  recipe to make it even boozier!

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.

How to Make Christmas Coffee 

To make this cocktail you start with very strong coffeee that can be made in an espresso machine, a Kuerig as shown below, or in a traditional drip coffee maker. I also like to use a French press for strong coffee. 

Then you add liqueurs to the coffee in a glass. You can also add rum or vodka to this recipe. Then stir to combine and top with fresh whipped cream. Garnish with grated chocolate.

You can serve this recipe warm or over ice! 

To make the coffee for this fabulous little cocktail, I used my new toy, The Keurig 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 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®  Brewing System online at many popular retailers. You can also find it in store at many stores, including Target.

I received the above Keurig for review purposes only.
