Every great host has at least a few fancy coffee recipes in his or her repertoire. I like to set up a coffee bar at my theme parties and then let my guests mix the kind of coffee drinks they prefer.
I usually have 3 airpots; one filled with strong regular coffee, one with decaf and the 3rd filled with hot water. Then I set out the basics including some great mugs, spoons, flavored creams and sugar. I also include a few different flavors of tea, hot chocolate mix, Baileys and Kahlua.
Now here comes the fun part. Add to your basic coffee bar the ingredients to make any or all of these fancy coffee recipes:
Any one of these fancy coffee recipes would be much appreciated by guests especially when served with desserts like our Chocolate Amaretto Cake. You can find more of our favorite dessert recipes and warm drink recipes here.
Another way to fancy up regular coffee is to serve it with a favorite liqueur like Kahlua, Frangelico, Amaretto or Baileys Irish Cream. Just add a shot and top with whipped cream for an instant after dinner coffee drink. Like Baileys? Find several Baileys cocktail recipes here.
I rarely drink coffee myself because me and caffeine don't get along, but every single morning I drink at least one Chai Tea made from a mix that I buy on line at Sams Club. Recently I ran across this video from divascancook which shows a very easy way to make Chai Tea at home without any fancy coffee equipment. Just a pan and some basic ingredients.
