I'm enjoying a cup of coffee early Saturday evening and thinking a splash of something might really raise the caliber of the rest of my night. What's a good choice? Brandy? Whiskey? preferably something friendly to a student budget.

instead of milk or cream I like to add anything from kaluaha/Amarula/bailey's, etc to to Tia Maria or Frangelica.

Bacardi 151....

Spanish Coffee

* Sugar or a combination of Sugar and Cinnamon to rim glass
* 1 tbsp Bacardi 151
* Cinnamon
* 1 oz Brandy
* 1 oz Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
* 4 oz of Coffee (regular or decaf)
* Heavy cream, whipped until thick but not stiff

Rim glass with sugar or sugar-cinnamon mixture.

Add the Bacardi 151 to the glass, tip the glass and light the rum. Immediately begin turning the glass so that the flame can melt the sugar around the rim. Continue turning until the sugar is caramelized.

Set the glass upright and shake in a bit of cinnamon. If your flame is still burning the cinnamon will spark a bit. Add the Brandy, Kahlua and Coffee. Gently pour whip cream on the top of the drink. Serve with a straw.

Bailey's is the old standby. For good reason.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
