New Cocktail for National Coffee Day from Henessy VS!!

As you may remember, this coming Monday is National Coffee Day. We gave you a great coffee infographic for it the other day, but we realized there was one problem – no liquor! Now we’re not saying that every time you drink coffee it needs to have liquor in it. You’ve probably all had a boss, teacher, or coworker who does that, and it’s not the greatest look. We’re not suggesting that you become THAT person. All we’re saying is, if you never use coffee as a mixer, you’re missing out on a whole world of drinks that put some pep in your step with a little bit of that delicious Hennessy flavor too. Think of it like a grown-up Red Bull Vodka.

Another thing – if you ARE going to show up to work with a spiked coffee, don’t think that you’re getting away with anything. People don’t normally make that face when drinking out of a coffee mug, and 11 AM is NOT a healthy time to start stumbling, slurring words, and smelling like someone poured paint thinner in your mouth. Just our two cents on the matter.

Enough of that, on to the recipe!
