This coffee drink is sort of like an Irish Coffee that decided to vacation in Hawaii. The liquors blend nicely together with strong Kona coffee, and will have you warmed up in no time on a cold February night. Of course if you live in the sub-tropics like ol’ Tiki Chris does, you can serve it cold on a hot February night.
3 to 4 oz. Kona Coffee
1 oz. Vodka
0.5 oz. coffee liqueur
0.5 oz. Baileys Original Irish Cream
splash cream to taste
Starting with the coffee, pour all ingredients into a coffee or Tiki mug and stir gently, then top off with a splash of Sambuca and cream. Add whipped cream (real, not Cool Whip!) and sprinkle a little nutmeg on top. This is a great drink to have with rum-based desserts.

I would wake up, drink that and be on high tilt ALL day long. That’s too much for me.
This looks terrific! Might have to whip these up this weekend.
