The Awesome Coffee

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 8, 2018

Some people require only a crackling fire to warm their holiday. But for those of us who want to burn this Christmas party down, only a spark-shooting caffeinated cocktail will do. And that’s why we are positively melting for City Park Grill’s aptly named Awesome Coffee. A blend of Kahlua, Bailey's Irish Cream, and Grand Marnier, this sweetie's rimmed and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, then caramelized by another hot combo: Everclear and a flame. Post-ignition, the Everclear is evacuated and the glass topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick. Joe Keedy, City Park Grill manager, calls it the perfect warm-you-up winter drink; we call it just plain perfect. 432 E Lake St., (231) 347-0101, www.cityparkgrill.com
