Yep! That’s right. Time to get ready for the holidays with a homemade Vanilla Cream Liqueur. I like to make up a large batch or two and divide it up for holiday party hostess gifts. Sadly, there will be no party going this year. So, I guess I’ll have to keep the batch all to myself for my weekend morning coffee.
This is a simple and delicious alternative to regular coffee creamers. It’s a sweet, rich and creamy liquor that adds a nice touch to not only your morning coffee, but whipped creams and ice cream.
One of my favorite drinks with this liqueur is a hot cup of cinnamon coffee. It’s a cozy beverage for watching the kids decorate the Christmas tree. Our family traditions around the Christmas tree are some of my favorite. Every year, during the week after Thanksgiving, we pick up our tree at a local nursery. While we’re there, we each get a hot drink and a fresh baked cookie. Then, we meander around looking at all of the holiday decorations in the store and the delightful train set they arrange. Finally, we pick out our tree, a 6″ fir, and bring it home.
The next weekend, we bring out all of the decorations and get to work. Over years, the kids have taken over the tree. My job is to pack away all of the year round and autumn decorations. They allow me to decorate the mantel, at least. Once it’s all complete, we sit back and enjoy our beautiful family home…and dream of the presents that will arrive under the tree.
So, whether you wrapped up on the couch with a cozy blanket and some of the rich and creamy liqueur and Vodka on ice or a cup of hot Homemade Cocoa topped with Vanilla Cream Liqueur Whipped Cream – Here’s wishing you and your family a healthy and happy Holiday Season.
