Irish coffee consists of two delicious drinks: coffee and alcohol. If you’re a fan of either of these, combining them into a warm, cozy concoction is a great way to end (or begin) an evening with your friends and relatives. We suggest serving irish coffee with a big slice of pie for dessert. Here’s a great Irish Coffee recipe to get you started.

This sinfully sweet drink recipe includes a printable card to set out with a few ingredients (cinnamon, butterscotch schnapps, cream, and caramel sauce, and whipped cream). The guests can make their own sweet coffee drink, and you can sit back and focus on the feast. Win-win!
5. CHOCOLATY GOODNESS: MAKE YOUR OWN Mocha
A while back, our readers asked us how to make the perfect mocha at home. We came up with a super simple mocha recipe and a few creative variations like a velvety white mocha with a spicy kick and a salted mocha. For your guests, we suggest having our classic mocha on hand when they arrive. It’s as easy as brewing a big batch of coffee and melting in chocolate and a dash of cream. It’s easy and delicious!
