Evening CoffeePosted: September 12, 2013
James and I will often have a cocktail after dinner to unwind after a full day of work and just enjoy the rest of our evening together . Unwinding with a cup of coffee seems counter intuitive, but I like to reserve coffee for relaxing weekday nights and easy going lazy weekend mornings. I’m a tea girl, but every once in a while I crave that stronger coffee punch and complimenting good coffee with a splash of Irish liquor doesn’t hurt the unwinding process. I always make coffee with a French press, it looks more appetizing and it tastes freshest; I also find it the easiest process for coffee making.
As you can see the coffee wasn’t too strong, didn’t want to overdo it so close to bed time with the caffeine. I used a flavored coffee (caramel toffee) that could compliment the sweetness of the Irish liquor and feel like a dessert drink after a good dinner.
Having cats doesn’t hurt the unwinding either. Cuddling up with them always helps ease any troubles away. True to their breed, these guys always want to be wherever the action is.
