The Brewerburns Recipe for Holiday Cheer
First. get up. This is usually the first step for any project. Second, brew some coffee. Extra strong. Second, realize that you already have a Second. Third, get out your bottle of schnapps. Peppermint, cinnamon, spearmint will do. Also: Brandy, preferably flavored (I have some apricot brandy sitting in my cupboard.) Or Baileys. Or Rum. Not Vodka! Get down your normal coffee mug. Pour in a shot of schnapps, then a splash of half and half, then coffee. Drink. Repeat. Too late on a Sunday night for coffee? Replace the coffee with hot cocoa. Or remove the half and half and coffee from the recipe, and the schnapps, and have a shot of vodka instead. Or maybe two, depending on what your Mnoday morning looks like.
