The dessert form of Coffee

Who likes coffee with their desert? I do!!!! Especially when it is Canadian Coffee. icanaffordcanadianwhiskeyMy Dad has been making this drink since the late 1970’s and it has been a family tradition as far back as I can remember. Why is it called Canadian Coffee you ask? Well because it has some Rye Whisky in it!


3/4 cup hot brew coffee

1 T Rye whisky

1 T Kahlua coffee liqueur

1 T Amaretto liqueur

1 T Triple Sec liqueur (dad’s addition)

Whipped cream and cherry to garnish

icing sugar

Rub the lip of an Irish coffee glass with a paper towel soaked in amaretto. Dip the glass in icing sugar to frost the edge. Pour the ingredients into the glass and top with whipped cream. Garnish with the cherry!

irishcoffeestandardweb1How lovely is that? I just love this little night cap with my dessert!


For those of you who would prefer a non-alcoholic coffee with their dessert try my brother’s Vietnamese coffee. espresso_still_life

You need: 1 serving of espresso coffee and 1 T of sweetened condensed milk. Pour the ingredients over ice in a large glass.  Stir and serve!

PS: My brother often adds a liqueur to make this drink just alittle more interesting!

Hope you enjoy your coffee……Make sure to use decaf if caffeine keeps you up at night!
