As the leaves start falling, every coffee merchant breaks out their best holiday flavors. Not to throw shade at iced coffees, but there is something super comforting about a nice cup of hot coffee.
Whether you like the crisp taste of peppermint, or want to stay a little more classic with cinnamon or nutmeg spices; holiday coffees are yummy, so we’re going to give you a few ideas on how to make the best holiday coffees.
1. Peppermint Coffee
One of the best holiday flavors is peppermint, and it can be a great combination with your favorite brew. A lot of stores sell peppermint coffee creamer, but you could also add a couple of squirts of a peppermint syrup into your mug, and mix in coffee with half and half.
Add a little whipped cream on top, and sprinkle some smashed up bits of mint candy on top for decoration.
2. Peppermint Mocha
One of the most popular holiday flavors is a peppermint mocha. The sharp and cool taste of peppermint perfectly contradicts the bitter taste of mocha to make a wonderful, and warm tasting flavor.
You can put a little mocha syrup into your caffeinated beverage, and top if off with some peppermint flavoring. It is a perfect way to turn any coffee beverage into a holiday season delight
3. Irish Coffee
This might be a favorite winter-time holiday beverage, especially for when the in-laws are around (wink wink). Irish coffee is simple: you have coffee, and you add some alcohol to it to give yourself a little bit of a holiday cheer boost.
A cream liqueur is a great and yummy add on to coffee, and peppermint or eggnog cream liqueur will be available to add during the holidays.
4. Eggnog Flavored Coffee
A great alternative to your traditional cream and sugar is eggnog. This holiday beverage is distinctly saved for Christmas, to celebrate the cold holiday season.
Eggnog is a classic holiday favorite, and tastes extra yummy when mixed with your favorite coffee brew for an amazing morning cup of Joe.
5. Holiday Spice
All you need for this recipe is your favorite brewed coffee, adding in a tablespoon of nutmeg, a tablespoon of cinnamon, a teaspoon of ginger, and a little bit of vanilla.
This incorporates all the amazing holiday flavors into one cup of coffee. It is perfect for a snowy and windy day, while you wear your favorite pajamas and fuzzy socks.

Christmas coffee punch is a great way to get yourself in the holiday spirit.
