Adult Christmas Coffee Recipes

Every year on Christmas morning, my mom would go to elaborate lengths to decorate her expanded dining room table to the point where the Queen of England would have been impressed. Her finest crystal and best china along with plenty of German deli meats, croissants, rolls, creamy, luxurious cheeses and of course, champagne.

It was something the entire family looked forward to. Everyone descended on that table like vultures who hadn’t eaten in months. We saved our appetites for it all morning, making sure to open gifts first so that nobody, including the kids, would feel like they needed to rush through breakfast.

But there was one table that people tended to gravitate towards just prior to breakfast. It was a separate dresser she had sitting near the entry that she used as a table to hold a lamp and other nicknacks during the year. But at Christmas, it got cleaned off so that her finest coffee set could sit on its golden tray next to the coffee maker and a rather impressive selection of alcohol bottles. The golden coffee pot sat on its tray, the tallest of the set. Then there was the golden creamer cup and sugar cup with lid and a golden spoon. I’m not sure if we ever actually used the gold coffee pot because most people just helped themselves to coffee directly from the coffee maker. But that selection of alcohol is truly what drew everybody’s attention first thing in the morning. That combination of caffeine waking you up and alcohol relaxing your muscles was a nice way to start the day.

At some point in time, my mother printed out a collection of adult coffee beverages so that people would know their options for making that precious morning cup of alcoholic Joe.

During my last move, everything was packed and I honestly thought I’d lost her list. And while I still have many of those alcohol bottles (most of them nowhere near empty), I wasn’t sure what to do with them if I didn’t have her lists.  I’m not overly fond of alcohol in my coffee, but most of the people I know definitely are. So I was a little annoyed at the thought of possibly losing it.

Thankfully, I found it today while going through my bookshelf! They aren’t recipes per se, but they give suggestions for different ways to prepare your Christmas coffee.

Since I don’t want to take the chance of losing the list again, I thought I’d post it here for safekeeping. Enjoy!
