Every morning I sit here and listen to the guys working on the new addition to the house, the hammering, the scraping, the sawing etc. It doesn't exactly make for a bright, sunshiny start to the day. So, I make a giant pot of Christmas Coffee. If I must sit here in the chaos, I will do it highly caffeinated. What is Christmas Coffee, you ask? It's just regular coffee infused with spices to make it extra special. It's barely a recipe, but I had to share it with you. It's just such an easy way to elevate your coffee to the next level. Perfect for the holidays!
How to do it: When you make your pot of coffee, after you add the grounds, sprinkle a little pumpkin pie spice onto the grounds (not too much, it's powerful stuff) then add a few drops of vanilla extract to the grounds. Turn your pot on. That's it. It's seriously easy but makes your coffee taste like it came from a fancy coffee house.
So, the next time you make a pot of coffee, give this a try. It'll make even the most hectic morning a little brighter. Enjoy!
