The ‘Winter in the South’ Coffee Cocktail will warm up your hands and your soul this holiday season. Easy to make and requiring just a few ingredients, this warm coffee cocktail will keep the party going on cool winter evenings.
Winter in the South… things look a little different “down South” around Christmas time. There’s not much snow on the ground, and there’s not even much of a chill in the air. But, we definitely know how to celebrate the season properly – with a perfectly crafted Southern Coffee Cocktail made with Charleston Coffee Roasters coffee, local bourbon, farmer’s market honey, and cream. Yes, real cream.
Enjoy our Winter in the South Coffee Cocktail in lieu of your morning cup of joe (it’s the holidays, I give you permission). Have it fireside cuddled up next to the one you love, or pour it into a to-go mug for a little liquid courage if you’re headed out caroling. Everyone sings better after a little bourbon, dontcha think?
Selecting Coffee for our Coffee Cocktail
When you have recipes with few ingredients like our Winter in the South Coffee Cocktail, you want to choose your ingredients with intention. Charleston Coffee Roasters selects the world’s best beans and roasts each batch to bring out their best flavor. And because they roast what they sell, their beans are always fresh.
I like to buy whole bean coffee and grind it at home with our burr grinder, but you can also start with ground coffee as well. In this southern coffee cocktail, we’re using Charleston Coffee Roasters Charleston Organic Whole Bean Coffee. The Holiday Blend or Beach House Blend would also be perfect for this recipe.
