Spike Your Coffee Friday

For the last few months on my Twitter I have been pushing #spikeurcoffeefriday.  It is not an attempt to show my true alcoholism, but a way to share my passion for something I hold near and dear to my heart, booze in the morning.

I challenge you find me a better time to spike your coffee.  In the afternoon, when you hit your 2pm slump, just won't do it because you need to finish you job with some semblance of coherence.  Late at night you really just need to start drinking the hard stuff and stop pussy-footing around with coffee.  First thing in the morning is best, you were already planning on having coffee anyway.  You are killing 2 birds with one drink.  Just add a little bit to your morning coffee and you are straight for the rest of the day.

Does this make me a bad person?  Absolutely not.  This makes me a person that understands my convictions and is driven make sure I have awesome-ist day possible.  Do I believe that I should be spiking my coffee while driving?  Absolutely not!!  You should never drink and drive.  You need to wait till you are in the parking lot of your employer, where you will then spike your coffee and walk into work as if everything in your life is hunky dory, which it is because you have just spiked your coffee.

I urge you all to take a moment and spike your coffee on a Friday.  Feel the liberation that comes with starting your happy hour 8 hours early, taste how good sitting through that TPS report meeting can really be, open your senses to what coffee can really smell like, and have that secretive "F-you" to your boss hidden inside your travel mug.  Then once you have felt the liberation, tasted the goodness, and smelled the love; tweet about it so I can get some credit for inventing #spikeurcoffeefriday.

Recipes: (these are some of my personal favorites, if you call them something different- I don't want to hear about it)

Irish Coffee - 1 cup coffee, 1oz Bailey Irish Cream, 1oz Irish Whiskey (I prefer Jameson)

43 Coffee - 1 cup coffee, 1oz Bailey Irish Cream, 1oz Licor 43

Italian Coffee - 1 cup coffee, 2oz Amaretto (get the DiSaronno)

Nutty Irishman - 1 cup coffee, 1oz Baileys Irish Cream, 1oz Frangelico

Hot Tub Heaven - 1 cup coffee, 1oz Peppermint Schnapps, 1oz Amaretto, 1oz Baileys Irish Cream

This is just a few of the easiest to make without much trouble from your boss, but there are plenty more available for research over at www.webtender.com
