Kahlúa & Coffee with Irish Cream recipe for entertaining

When you’re entertaining at home and serving cocktails it’s always a good idea to create a signature drink or serve something based on the season. A coffee cocktail can get you through the fall and winter, but it’s also great for those chilly nights in early spring. Sitting outside by the fire pit sipping on a hot drink is so relaxing! 

I feel like such a grown up when I drink a hot coffee cocktail. It makes me feel like I’m living my best life, sitting by the fire at a ski resort. When in reality I’m probably in my pj’s on the couch watching RHOBH.

But, when you’re hosting at home this hot Kahlúa & Coffee recipe is an absolute MUST to add to your cocktail repertoire. Serve it in a glass mug with whipped cream on top for a delicious dessert-like drink.
