#DOTW: Café Amore

Here in New York City we had a pretty mild winter so far. It’s mid February, so the chances are, it’s going to stay mild until spring lifts our spirits.But it’s definitely cold enough to want to warm yourself up with a nice hot beverage when you get home. And if it’s the weekend, might as well spike it up a little! So here’s a great coffee cocktail that’ll warm your spirits and body.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz Remy Martin (or quality cognac of your choice)\
  • 1 oz Amaretto Di Saronno
  • hot coffee
  • whipped cream
  • sliced almonds

In a mug or tea glass, add cognac and amaretto. Fill up with coffee. Top off with whipped cream and sliced almonds. Easy as pie.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
