The Valentines Day Buzz

Call me crazy (and many do), but Valentine's Day and all of the hoopla that surrounds it is one of the most over-rated holidays of the year.  If you're married or in a relationship, anniversaries are the time to over indulge your other half, not Valentine's Day when prices on everything from romantic dinners out, flowers, chocolates, hotel rooms, etc, sky rocket. If you really want to please your honey, get them DRUNK!  Well, maybe not drunk, but a little buzz never hurt anyone!
This is a perfect cocktail for a cold, winter night, so why not whip one up tomorrow for your love, sit by  the fire and after a few sips you'll be as happy as can be!  While you brew up a fresh pot of coffee, in a glass mug (looks the best AND isn't too hot to touch) add the following:
1 1/2 ounces of Irish whiskey or rum
1/2 ounce of hazelnut liqueur, like Frangelico
1/2 ounce Irish cream (Bailey's)
Top it all off with hot coffee, a little whip cream and enjoy!
