Starbucks Christmas Blend
My daughter gave me a Starbucks giftcard as a Christmas present and I got two more bags of the Christmas Blend with it. I always get one for myself as a present, but I'm in Christmas Blend Heaven when I found more at our Starbucks. They're usually gone before Christmas.
Starbuck's Spiced Holiday Coffee
2/3 C. ground Starbucks Christmas Blend or other dark roast coffee
4 cinnamon sticks, crushed or broken into small pieces
6 C. water
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
2/3 C. honey
Half-and-half or milk
Mix together the coffee and cinnamon sticks. Using the coffee-cinnamon mixture and the water, brew coffee by your customary brewing method. Add the cardamom and honey to the hot coffee and stir until the honey dissolves. Serve warm. Pour about 2/3 cup coffee into each glass. Pass the half-and-half or milk.
