1904 Coffee Mocktail

While I am not much of a coffee drinker, I know that I fall into the minority, which is why I decided to share this 1904 coffee mocktail with everyone on this beautiful Tuesday Fall afternoon.
This was created by the Tennessee-based Honest Coffee Roasters. So what is it exactly?
Coffee + Fireball reduction + Orange + Ginger + Bitters.
By making a reduction of this cauldron fire whiskey, you get all the cinnamon-y whiskey flavors without the alcohol.

The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
What To Drink Tonight: Hot Toddy with a Twist
I was browsing the internet for hot drink recipes when I stumbled across this twist on the classic Hot Toddy. For those of you who don't know what a Hot Toddy is, it's a classic hot alcoholic beverage typically enjoyed during the cold months of fall and winter. It lights the most delightful fire deep inside you, filling your body with warmth that spreads all the way to the tips of your toes. A classic hot toddy contains: whiskey hot water spices (such as cinnamon and cloves) lemon juice honey Keep in mind, there are about a million variations. But that's the classic, and it's been a beloved homespun cold and flu remedy for decades. This twist on the old classic is called a Pearman's Toddy, and it's what you should be drinking on this chilly fall night. Now this variation is particularly suited to fall because of the homemade cinnamon simple syrup. Fill your home with the delicious wafting scent of cinnamon while preparing an alcoholic beverage to enjoy with a loved one? Yes, please! Another reason the Pearman's Toddy is so interesting to me is the replacement of whiskey with gin. The notes of pine and bitter herbs in a good gin make it a particularly attractive autumnal spirit in my book. Combine that with a bit of lemon juice, cinnamon simple syrup, and a shake of good old Angostura bitters, and you've got the perfect thing the keep you warm tonight. Make your own Pearman's Toddy! Recipe adapted from Saveur You'll need: 2 oz. gin 1 oz. cinnamon simple syrup 1⁄2 oz. lemon juice 1 dash Angostura bitters 5 cinnamon sticks 1. Make the simple syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 4 cinnamon sticks and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has dissolved. Discard cinnamon sticks and set aside. 2. Make the cocktail: Rinse small saucepan and re-use to heat gin, syrup, lemon juice, and 2 oz. of water. Pour into a mug or mason jar and add bitters. Garnish with last cinnamon stick, and enjoy the feeling of warmth spreading through you! Feel free to share this recipe with other Fall cocktail lovers :) @marshalledgar @BrettEckert @rodiziketan @VinMcCarthy What do you guys think of this one?? Ever tried it?
Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of.
