Maybe we’ve been doing it all wrong?  I think it’s safe to say that if you like coffee you’ve probably had it spiked with Baileys Irish Cream.  But it’s generally not something we think to pour into our tea.  So I’ve gone ahead and not only added Baileys Irish Cream, but also Grand Marnier to a London fog latte.  It’s really quite delicious!! 

Ingredients for Baileys London Fog on a silver tray lined with a blue napkin.

The Baileys Irish Cream smooths out the tannins of the tea and adds an extra layer of creaminess while the Grand Marnier plays off the orange notes already found in the Earl Grey tea.  So go ahead, relax and enjoy your favourite London fog latte at home… but with a punch.  You’ll wonder why you haven’t done it sooner. Enjoy!

      Recipe Notes

      -You can use purchased vanilla syrup.

      -Make your own vanilla syrup by bringing a 1/2 cup of sugar and a 1/2 cup of water to a simmer, stirring to dissolve sugar.  Remove from heat and add 2 tsp vanilla extract or fresh vanilla beans from 1/2 a vanilla pod.  Allow to cool and then strain if using fresh vanilla beans.

      -If no vanilla syrup is possible, sweeten to taste with sugar and add a splash of vanilla extract.

      Raspberry Rum Punch

      Raspberry Rum Punch

      This year I’m smitten, not because of a new romance, but because I’ve had the pleasure to love the same man for more than 20 years. With this kind of time comes an understanding of moods, fleeting kisses, cuddles, and the contentment to spend the evening watching television. Little is expected in the way of fancy gifts and expensive roses on Valentine’s Day, it’s a cozy meal and quality time together that means the most to us. And while we would normally reach for a bottle of wine, this year we celebrate our time together with a fruity and flirty Raspberry Rum Punch.

      The vibrant colour and fruity taste makes it a delightful cocktail to sip and enjoy with your sweetheart. In fact, it’s even better with your long time love because it’s out of the comfort zone. Something new and refreshing! A slightly fizzy cocktail to “cheers” each other, with a love that is signified with the comfort found in one another. The fact that this cocktail is vibrant with raspberry flavour and rather delicious doesn’t hurt either. It might just mean we’ll have to have two. Happy Valentine’s Day!

          Raspberry Sauce
          1. In a small sauce pan over medium heat stir together all ingredients and allow to cook down, mashing berries as it does, approximately 2-3 minutes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve, pushing on the solids to extract the juice. Can be made ahead, covered and refrigerated until ready to use. Yields approximately 3 ounces.

          1. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add rum, Grand Marnier, raspberry syrup and a generous squeeze of lime juice. Shake until cold, about 30 seconds. Divide equally between two cocktail glasses and top up each with an approximate ounce of soda. Serve immediately.

          Blueberry Tea

          Blueberry Tea

          With the cold winter months upon us, it seems only right to cozy up to the fire with a warm Blueberry Tea. Aromatic with a hint of blueberry makes this cocktail a delight to sip on. The essence of blueberries is created from the combination of Grand Marnier, Amaretto and Orange Pekoe tea, no actual blueberries are needed.  Only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to the contented comfort of a warm aromatic drink in your hand. Blueberry Tea is under rated, especially with people like me who live in the cold 4-5 months of the year. Blueberry Tea is so easy and so enjoyable, there’s no reason not to be sipping on one tonight.
