Recipe by justdonner

While I was compiling some recipes for my about-to-be-married, coffee-adoring friend, I came up with this, an improvisation of many recipes I've come across as a bartender and coffee lover. I've yet to try it, but I have a hard time believing it's not absolutely scrumptious. I made something similar on the stove-top in a large pot for a group of us on a ski trip in Maine. Let me know what you think. You could probably omit the kahlua if you're looking to limit your alcohol intake; the coffee should be strong so as to bring out the flavor.

I did not have the creme de cacao but it was still really good. I will be making it again very soon!
