Deborah Biggs of Omaha, Nebraska, loves gingerbread so much that she decided to put its flavors right into her coffee. The result? A not-too-sweet drink that warms you from head to toe. If your holiday party falls on a rainy, cold night, consider serving it instead of eggnog.
Serves 2 (serving size: 6 oz.)
1. With a mixer, whip 2 tbsp. cream until thick; set aside. Combine the remaining cream, the sugar if using, molasses, and pumpkin pie spice in a small saucepan. Whisk over medium-low heat until steaming and well blended, about 3 minutes.
2. Remove from heat, stir in hot coffee, whiskey, and liqueur. Pour into two mugs. Add a cinnamon stick and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
