Serves 6

Start with strong-brewed French-roast coffee, add a splash of hazelnut liqueur, and finish with vanilla bean, cream, and sugar. Because what better way is there to kick off a festive brunch or settle down to dessert than with a spiked cup of coffee?


  • 6 cups hot strong-brewed French-roast coffee
  • 3/4 to 1 cup Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • Ice
  • Garnish: freshly grated nutmeg

How to Make It

  1. Combine hot coffee and liqueur in a thermos; screw on lid. Stir together whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla bean paste in a 16-ounce jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and chill in ice at least 15 minutes. When ready to serve, shake jar 8 to 10 minutes or until cream is whipped. Pour coffee into mugs, and top with whipped cream mixture. Garnish, if desired.
