I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Coffee Spritzer

Served virgin style this coffee seltzer is a refreshing pick-me-up! But if you're looking for more of a coffee cocktail we've got that covered too!  

Virgin Coffee Spritzer:
1 oz cold brewed coffee
4-5 oz tonic or sparkling water
orange peel

Coffee Spritzer Cocktail:
1 oz coffee liqueur
4-5 oz tonic or sparkling water
orange peel

Brew your coffee in the morning and make a little extra. Refrigerate until needed.
Then add cold coffee to the bottom of a tall glass. You could put some ice cubes in too but I didn't in this pic. Pour in the tonic (I like tonic rather than sparkling water because it gives a nice, bitter element to the drink). Then just add a slice of orange peel to give it a hint of orange. Sweeten if you like.

For the boozy version, same idea except use your favourite coffee liqueur in place of the cold coffee. You can use Tia Maria, Kahlua or what I used... Javalley Coffee Liqueur by Barrelling Tide in Nova Scotia. (Looks like I'm going to need some more!)
