The holidays are around the corner and with that parties, food and drinks will inevitably multiply to stay on pace with your holiday cheer.

Or it should. Because as the Julia Child saying goes, ‘People who love to eat are always the best people.’ Can we add drink to that saying as well?

I mean the ones who can enjoy a good sip like a good meal.

With that I created a cocktail made for sipping. More specifically for all that holiday brunching that’s bound to happen—The Bruncher. A drink inspired by the Espresso Martini.

Kahlua has become the sidekick to my coffee. Whether it’s my weekend sip or my go-to for an after dinner drink to go with dessert, I’m loving it and can’t wait to share it with my friends and family this holiday season. Have it cold or hot–either way, I’d love to hear what you think about it when you give this a go.

    Oh my! We love Kahlua, it is a staple in my pantry. I love cocktails with Kahlua and it takes baked goods to a whole new level. BTW, Miss Naomi that mug rocks! I happen to have some chickory from Cafe Du Monde, so I am putting this on my winter cocktail list.
