Yum, yum, yum. This was perfect last night, after my 2 1/2 hour walk. So delicious, so perfect. Really hit the spot. It has so much flavor I couldn't contain myself. Made exactly as written, until it was time to garnish. Alas! when I went to the fridge, no cherries there. I didn't want to leave this baby unadorned so I used my second favorite topping, caramel, which I drizzled over the whipped cream and garnished with some coarse sea salt. It worked beautifully in the coffee, married beautifully with the butterscotch schnapps and made it sing even higher. Thank you so much for sharing and creating this tasty treat. It is a winner in my books. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Great Britian - Pub Crawl
We made this to support our fellow Fearless Red Dragons in ZWT8. Probably better suited to a winter evening than our August heat, we nevertheless found it adventuresome and easy to enjoy. One member of the family called it "evil hot chocolate" (evil only because of the alcohol). One surprise is that the coffee flavor almost disappeared when the butterscotch Schnapps was added; it just seems to balance it out.
Oh my! I enjoyed this wonderful creation very much indeed after Christmas dinner last night. I must say that I fully enjoyed the experience of sitting in the living room sipping this while watching the snow fall outside the big picture window in the and the fireplace channel on tv (wish I had a real one!) as the guys washed all of the dishes in the kitchen. There are moments when life is good and that was one of them. I think this is what is meant by "Christmas Cheer" :D
