Home Made DIY Christmas Coffee Drinks! Do it yourself and save money.

Hello, and today I will be sharing with you how to make some home made DIY (do-it-yourself) Christmas Coffee Drinks cheap and easy to save money! It's become tradition for most people to drink coffee at the end of the night or during a party, especially on Christmas. Eggnog, wine, and cream liquors are all big hits-- it just fits the scenery and scent of pine cones and winter. Anyways, these recipes below are quite easy and inexpensive, so you'll be able to save money without even having to think about it. The ingredients between these recipes don't change too much, but it helps you get an idea of what you can do to make your own! Don't bother buying an expensive book to help you put together your drinks and dishes for Christmas, come here, save money, and find everything you need! These have been tested and enjoyed by myself to let you know if they are any good, and pulled from various places that I have seen them (including in some books). Clearly, I worked hard (or at least that's what I tell myself) to put this list together, and I've altered the recipes a little from their original states. Here you go!

Cafe Maria


1/4 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur
1/4 ounce Kahlúa
1/4 ounce Amaretto
5 ounces freshly brewed coffee
2 tablespoons heavy cream, whipped
Ground cinnamon to taste
Grated chocolate to taste
2 cinnamon sticks

Combine Irish Cream liqueur, Kahlúa, Amaretto and coffee. Divide between 2 coffee mugs. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon and chocolate. Serve with a cinnamon stick stirrer in each mug.

Cappucino Mix


10 ounces crème de cacao
5 ounces light rum
5 ounce gin
5 ounces brandy
2 1/2 ounces Galliano
12 cloves
Four 3-inch cinnamon sticks

2 2/3 cups scalded half-and-half
2 cups hot espresso
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Whipped cream
Ground cinnamon

In a jar with a screw-top lid combine well the crème de cacao, rum, gin, brandy, Galliano, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. Seal the jar with lid and let mixture stand 48 hours. Strain the mixture and return it to the jar. (This mixture is enough to make 18 drinks.) In a heatproof pitcher combine and mix well the scalded half-and-half, espresso, sugar and cocoa powder. Pour 1 jigger (1 1/2 ounces) of the liqueur mixture into each of the heatproof wineglasses that you hopefully have, and divide the espresso mixture among the glasses, garnishing each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon. Makes around 6 drinks.

Emergency Cappuccino


1 quart (4 cups) half-and-half
2 cups freshly brewed espresso
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
6 ounces Cognac or brandy
5 ounces (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons) Kahlúa
4 ounces rum
1 ounce Galliano
Whipped cream
Shaved chocolate
Ground cinnamon

In a large saucepan combine the half-and-half, espresso, honey, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. Place the mixture over medium-high heat and stir until almost scalded. Remove from heat and add the Cognac or brandy, Kahlúa, rum, and Galliano. Pour into heated cups or mugs
and garnish with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Makes 18 servings.

White Chocolate Cappuccino


4 cups whole milk
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
10 ounces good-quality white chocolate
(such as Lindt or Baker's), chopped
2 1/2 teaspoons brandy
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups hot strong fresh-brewed coffee
Unsweetened cocoa powder

Pour milk into heavy medium saucepan. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Add white chocolate; whisk until melted and smooth. Whisk in brandy and vanilla extract. Using tongs, remove vanilla bean. Return white chocolate mixture to
low heat; whisk until frothy, about 1 minute. Pour hot coffee into mugs. Ladle white chocolate mixture over. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and serve. Serves 8.

Spiced Rum Coffee


8 cloves
Four 2-inch strips of orange rind, removed with a vegetable peeler
2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
3/4 cup (4 jiggers) dark rum
3 cups freshly brewed strong coffee
Lightly sweetened whipped cream to taste
Garnish: freshly grated nutmeg

In each of four 8-ounce mugs combine 2 of the cloves, 1 strip of the rind, 1 1/2 teaspoons of the sugar, and 3 tablespoons (1 jigger) of the rum and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Divide the coffee, heated if necessary, among the mugs and stir the drinks until the sugar is dissolved. Top each drink with a dollop of the whipped cream and sprinkle the whipped cream with the nutmeg. Makes 4 servings.

Vienese Brandied Coffee


4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped, plus additional,
grated, for topping
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 cups freshly brewed strong coffee
1/2 cup brandy
Lightly sweetened whipped cream to taste

In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, melt the chopped chocolate with the cream, stirring, and stir the mixture until it is smooth. Add the coffee, heated if necessary, and the brandy in a stream, stirring, and stir the mixture until it is combined well. Divide the coffee among four 8-ounce mugs, top each drink with a dollop of the whipped cream, and sprinkle the whipped cream with the grated chocolate. Makes 4 servings.

C0ffee Rum Punch


1 3/4 cups light rum
1 1/4 cups dark rum
2/3 cup brandy
Thinly pared peel of 1 lemon
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg (optional)
1 1/2 quarts hot coffee

Mix the light rum, dark rum and brandy together in a non-reactive container. Stir in sugar to taste, the lemon peel, cinnamon and the nutmeg, if your are using it. Heat the mixture, set it alight, and let it flame for a few minutes; then add the coffee a little at a time, making sure that the liquid goes on flaming by stirring it with a spoon or a ladle. When the flame dies, serve the coffee rum punch immediately in heavy earthenware cups.

And that's all I've got for you now! Try some out, and plan for Christmas so you can break out your home made DIY (do-it-yourself) Coffee drinks and impress all your friends while you're saving money!

It appears quite clear from reading a number of product
reviews online that they do work and in some cases work exceptionally well.
For a long time, fake eyelashes have been on sale in the
stores and you could easily buy them and stick them on. Your salon could have a professional eyelash extension technician who can apply the
lashes for you.
