This fudge is pure bliss. It is made from Baileys Irish Cream and coffee. Fudge with booze and coffee? I’m in! The fudge smells unbelievably good and it’s so silky smooth – the taste is heaven.

Ingredients:
1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream
1 Tbsp instant coffee crystals
3/4 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
7 oz. jar marshmallow cream
1 pkg vanilla morsels or butterscotch chips
1 tsp vanilla
Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka? Irish Coffee Fudge
Directions:
In a small bowl, combine Baileys and coffee crystals. Microwave on high for 15 seconds or until melted and dissolved. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter, evaporated milk, sugar, and marshmallow cream. Slowly add the Bailey’s coffee mixture. Stir well. Boil for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and mix in chips and vanilla extract. Stir for approx. 3-4 minutes, until smooth. Pour in a foil lined 8×8 pan. Chill to set.

Enjoy!

In the first few months of the year, I always feel this dreary kind of lull wash over me. So when I set out in search of a new cocktail, I had one thing in mind; it needed to be bright and cheerful. The cocktail I stumbled upon at Two-Tarts was JUST what I was looking for … it is called The Winter Sun Cocktail.

Ingredients:
– The juice of 4 clementines (about 1/2 of a cup)
– Juice of 1 small lemon (1 ounce)
– 1 oz of Triple Sec
– 3 ounces of vodka
− 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
− Lemon zest
− Sugar

Directions:
Moisten the rim of your glass with some fruit juice. Combine zest and sugar in a shallow bowl or plate. Turn the glass over onto the plate and coat with sugar. Pour the juices, triple sec, and vodka into a shaker with ice, shake well and then pour into a tumbler glass over ice. Garnish with rosemary sprigs – makes 2. Isn’t it gorgeous??? Cheers!
