rise-n-shine Let's face it, sometimes you need a little kick to get your day started. If you're going to be drinking early, you may as well make a decent cocktail and leave the Irish Coffees for the frat boys. Dave's Coffee Syrup and whole milk serve as the base in this one while orange liqueur gives it a touch of breakfast class. A perfect sipper for brunch, a hot Sunday afternoon, or whenever you just need a little sweet buzz.
