Almond Coffee Cream




Today I'm going to talk about three of my favorite things.  These favorite things just happen to create this awesome after dinner or cold fall afternoon drink!  We'll be short and sweet and cut right to the chase today.  After I share a few more photos.  :)


Amaretto flavored liquor.  One of my favorite things.  I especially love this Disaronno liquor.  Just open the bottle and take a deep whiff.  The almond scent is enough to make you feel comfy.  This is the time of year that I start to want something to warm me up.  Especially when we are expecting a bit of snow to hit the ground.  (that comment just doesn't sound right for snow in October you know, however, we've had it before)


Ah, yes.  Jernabi Coffee.  To me it is a very special treat.  Especially since I don't live in Northern New York anymore - where this coffee is roasted.  I know Kristina reads my blog regularly....I hope she reads this part. Jernabi Coffee would make a wonderful Christmas gift for the coffee lover in your life.  


The third ingredient in this recipe is cream....and what more wonderful to add to two other awesome ingredients than cream!

So, make yourself a pot of coffee, grab the cream from the fridge and the Amaretto liquor from your cabinet. Stir it all up and sit down in your lounging chair with a down filled blanket and tune into Lifetime Movie Network.  I can't think of any other way to enjoy a cold Saturday afternoon.  Can you?

Almond Coffee Cream

3/4 cup of your favorite brewed coffee
1/4 cup heavy cream, brought to a hot simmer
1 shot glass Amaretto liquor

Pour all 3 ingredients together in a coffee mug and stir....then enjoy.  :)

If you drink.....don't drive.  Drinking and driving has touched people I love recently and they have lost a child because of a drunk driver.  I hope that if you want to enjoy a drink, you will be smart enough to stay home or ride with a designated driver.

  1. What a wonderful drink to enjoy by the fire on a cold winter afternoon! I've never heard of Jernabi coffee, but I'd surely love to try it.

    And, totally agree about drinking responsibly. Have your cocktail at home or either make absolutely sure you have a designated driver. So sorry to hear about your family's loss.

  5. So so sorry to read about your cousin, that terrifies me to think that this happens on a daily basis. my heart aches for her and your family. So so sad. Its always the one not drinking that seems to kill someone else! It should be premeditated murder to do that. This judicial system needs to change and be a mandatory life sentence. I cant believe how this country doesnt do something about that. Shelby this is horrible.. I just feel so bad for all of you. I cant imagine the pain and never want to, god bless her and hope justice will be served to that drunk driver!
