Goodbye, autumn. Hello, early winter “weather bomb.” Thanks for nothing, Typhoon Nuri! It’s only mid-November and already there are sub-zero wind temperatures in some parts of the country. Some midwest towns already have over one foot of snow. And it looks like this crazy winter weather is just getting started.
So if you’re looking for a nice, warming cocktail to sip in front of a fire, let us introduce the Millionaire’s Coffee. It’s rich, just like the name suggests. A nightcap for high rollers and those who can only dream. Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
1/2 ounce Irish cream liqueur
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1/2 ounce Frangelico
1. Pour the first four ingredients into a deep coffee mug.
2. Add hot coffee.
3. Top with whipped cream.
If this winter is going to be as brutal as some weather experts suggest, you might want to keep this recipe handy.
