On Father’s Day I made a special morning drink for Wayne: a coffee cognac cooler. It got two thumbs up from the husband. 😉
Normally I try to make a new-to-us cocktail on holidays or special occasions. I enjoy searching up different ideas because we both enjoy taste testing them! I asked my husband what kind of drink he’d like me to create for Father’s Day and he said a cold coffee drink. Thanks to Google and Pinterest I finally came up with this result: a coffee cognac cocktail.
I wanted something a little sophisticated yet fun, and I think this drink definitely accomplishes that. It can be served in the morning for a treat, or even after dinner for a delectable dessert.
I chose to serve it with breakfast. The recipe calls for a scoop of coffee ice cream. Who doesn’t like ice cream for breakfast anyways? 😉
We spent the afternoon relaxing and BBQing, like I mentioned a few days ago. I thing some of the best memories can be made in moments that aren’t glamorous or even exciting. Sometimes the fondest recollections are those from times where everything was peaceful and just felt right.
