SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Spite the chilly weather with an ice-cold beverage (in the comfort of your warm home, of course), and add a little pick-me-up to your evening drink. In other words, mix yourself a nice sweet iced-caramel coffee — with a twist.

EXPERIENCE: Cold-brew some coffee (or if you’re lazy like me, just refrigerate a fresh pot) and pour over ice. Then mix in cream or milk to taste, and add a hearty splash of caramel vodka. For extra flavor and a bit more kick, stir in some caramel liqueur, Kahlua, or caramel syrup.

ADVICE: Pair your caramel-vodka iced coffee with a handful of Milk Duds or other chocolate-caramel candy. The sweet snack will help balance the bitterness of the coffee and alcohol. Also, use decaf coffee if you want to avoid the dangers of mixing alcohol and caffeine — or just want to prevent jitters.
