The saint nick special cocktail is perfect for the holiday season! Coffee, whiskey and irish cream come together to create a comforting, delish drink!
  • 6 ounces freshly brewed hot coffee
  • ½ ounce whiskey
  • 1 to 2 ounces Irish Cream liqueur
  • whipped cream for serving
  • crushed peppermints for serving
  • marshmallows for serving
  • flaked salt, for sprinkling
homemade hot fudge
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 14 ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup high-quality dark chocolate, I like 70%, chopped (or chocolate chips!)
  1. Stir together the hot coffee, whiskey, irish cream and a drop of hot fudge in mug until the hot fudge starts to melt. Rim the mug with more hot fudge. Top with whipped cream, marshmallows and crushed peppermints. Sprinkle on some flaked salt. Enjoy!
  2. To make this cold, stir together cold brew or cold coffee with the whiskey and irish cream. Pour over ice. Rim the glass with hot fudge, top with the whipped cream. Go to town!
homemade hot fudge
  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and stir. Cook, stirring often, until the mixture comes to a boil. Let it boil and bubble for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring the entire time.
  2. Once the chocolate is melted and the mixture is thickened, set the pan aside and let it cool completely and thicken. If making right before you serve, you can use it while still warm. If reheating this, it heats great in the microwave in 10 second incredibles. The fudge sauce will stay great in the fridge for a few weeks!
