Amaretto Coffee Afternoon

20180325_153441

Sometimes you just need to treat yourself with the little things in life that make you happy. This is one of them for me. Having some disaronno left from New Year, I decided to treat myself today, because I deserve it!

 

Put a pot of fresh coffee on, preferably strong taste.

Pour some Disaronno or any Amaretto into a glass.

Top with freshly brewed coffee.

Froth up some milk or cream with a little frother and spoon on top.

Grate some dark chocolate over.

 

Relax and Enjoy a little afternoon delight.  xx
