Praline Coffee Cocktail Recipe

Praline Coffee Cocktail Recipe

Today is the first of three fall/winter-themed coffee recipes I’m bringing you courtesy of my brand new KitchenAid Coffee Maker. I’m a huge fan of coffee, and I know many of you are as well. This fall I’ve teamed up with KitchenAid to review one of their coffee makers and to bring you three coffee recipes that will keep your holiday parties and gatherings going on and on. I’m so excited – let’s get to it!

As many of you probably know, here in the South, coffee is central to our way living. We sing praises to our daily coffee rituals. And we celebrate important and hallowed holidays with the magical elixir as well. It would be practically sacrilege not to include it. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I had a family gathering or attended an event, day or night, that coffee wasn’t a part of. We drink it like we drink water… and iced tea (but that’s a whole other post!).

KitchenAid 12-Cup Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker

Coffee is special. Magical, even. Coffee has that great magical ability to extend an evening. People tend to linger longer over delicious cups of hot, steamy brew. One of my favorite features of this coffee maker is that it comes standard with a thermal carafe. This is perfect for our slow, long evenings. Regular glass coffee pots usually leave coffee tasting old, burnt and bitter. The well-insulated carafe on this particular coffee maker does the opposite – it helps your brew stay at a more even temperature so it’s bright, fresh and mild. Just like it was right after brewing. The main advantage here is that this keeps you out of the kitchen and away from the coffee maker and gives you more time to spend with your treasured guests.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy that late evening cup of coffee is with a little something extra. Like a little booze. Oh yes. I go there. Often! Sometimes it’s a little Frangelico. Other times I’ll hit up the Bailey’s or Kahlua. Recently, though, I’ve started hitting the praline liqueur. YESSSSS, this is a real thing, and it most certainly does exist. While it is a fantastic cordial to sip on “neat,” it also makes a great mixer for coffee drinks. It’s a real double-duty work horse. It also retails for under $20/bottle so that’s just the icing on the cake!

Praline Liqueur

Today I’m combining my love of coffee, cocktails and praline liqueur. I’ve created a quick and easy coffee cocktail recipe that will make you look like a creative genius to your party guests but will only take you the time it takes to brew the coffee. It’s really that easy. This hot coffee cocktail contains just three main ingredients (with an optional fourth) and requires no special barware or equipment. How’s that for convenience?

To close, I’ll say that I’ve just begun to scratch the surface on telling you about this coffee maker. In my other two posts, I’ll go into more detail on the coffee maker itself and some of the features I really enjoy about it. For now, suffice it to say, I love this coffee maker and highly recommend it to anyone looking to invest a little cash in a new machine. As with nearly all KitchenAid products, this coffee pot isn’t cheap (in price or quality). It retails for around $130 online (at Amazon), but if you’re a coffee lover, it’s time to upgrade to this. Think of all the long, leisurely evenings you can spend with friends over coffee cocktails this holiday season. Personally, I’m getting giddy just thinking of it. Wait, that might just be the praline liqueur talking… 😉 Nah, it’s me.
