Hard Coffee Cocktails you MUST Try
Recently I was sent some samples of what appeared to be K-Cup pods for coffee but they were not your average pods. These were from Cask & Kettle out of Michigan and they were heavenly! These pods inspired me to put together this post of hard coffee cocktails.
Cask & Kettle specializes in coffee pods that contain vodka. They also have an apple cider pod. I tried them all and the Mint Patty one was my absolute fave. I posted about it on my IG here. You have got to give these a try. They would make an amazing gift for any occasion as well. Jump on their website and see what calls your name.
