Cre­ative cof­fee com­bi­na­tions for Christ­mas morn­ing

Taste - - Contents -

Christ­mas brunch is be­com­ing a fix­ture in Kiwi house­holds ahead of the main event later in the day. What bet­ter way to get your fes­tive juices flow­ing than to serve up a vari­a­tion on your usual morn­ing ‘cup of joe’?

But­ter it up

Boost your en­ergy for the big day with a Bul­let­proof cof­fee. Sim­ply blend a cup of strong black cof­fee (espresso or strong fil­ter) with 1 Tbsp co­conut oil and 1-2 Tbsp un­salted but­ter. You can flavour it with vanilla ex­tract, turmeric, choco­late pow­der or cin­na­mon, if you wish. The health claims about this drink have been largely de­bunked, but it def­i­nitely makes for a rich and eye-open­ing morn­ing milk­shake. BIOHACKER.CO.NZ

Morn­ing glory

Kick off the day with a cof­fee cock­tail. The Ir­ish cof­fee is a clas­sic where cof­fee meets whisky, a dash of sugar and whipped cream for a boozy, Guin­ness-es­que ‘cof­fee’. Scan­di­na­vians don’t muck around; their cof­fee cock­tail con­coc­tion called karsk is just black cof­fee mixed with moon­shine or vodka. For some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent, try cof­fee with tequila, whipped cream and cin­na­mon sugar, or cut to the chase and mix a shot of cof­fee with vodka and Quick Brown Fox liqueur for a morn­ing espresso mar­tini.

Cof­fee fun-gus

Medic­i­nal mush­rooms are boiled, liq­ue­fied, dried and blended with Ara­bica cof­fee to make Four Sig­matic’s in­stant cof­fee mix­ture. The Fin­nish mak­ers claim it adds a nu­tri­ent and min­eral boost, and they even rec­om­mend it with but­ter, ca­cao pow­der, and co­conut oil for a bul­let­proof mush­room cof­fee.
