The O'Brien Buzz

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
My friend Susi O'Brien has opened a hip new coffee shop in Greenpoint Brooklyn, and has come up with this excellent drink that tastes like it has coffee in it — but it doesn't! It does, however, contain a nice shot of booze.

4 ounces milk
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon molasses
1 1/2 ounces Meyer's rum
1/2 ounce brandy
whipped cream

Steam the milk with the sugar and ginger. Stir in the molasses. Gently pour in the rum and brandy, and top with whipped cream. How easy is that?
