5 Ways to Dress Up Your Coffee for the Holidays

The holidays are always filled with spectacular memories from gift giving and caroling to sledding and cookie baking. But there’s a special moment that often goes unnoticed: Waking up in your warm, cozy home with a savory cup of flavored coffee steaming in your hands.

With the holidays around the corner, we want you to experience our flavored coffees in a whole new light—with some added sparkle and joy! Here are five ways to dress up your flavored coffee for the holidays, including some of our favorite pairings to enjoy with family and friends. 

Tip #1: Make a coffee snowman (no mittens needed)

Transform your coffee experience by adding a little holiday treat! All you need are large marshmallows, stick pretzels, and decorating gels for the eyes and nose to create a snowman coffee topper.  

Once you’ve made your snowman, pour frothy milk in your coffee—about a quarter inch from the rim—and then place the snowman on top to float as you sip! You’ll be sure to get some smiles when you serve this for the holidays!

Our Mocha Mint Grogg flavored coffee is the perfect mix of cocoa and mint flavors. Don’t worry—it’s not overpowering at all and has just the right amount of sweetness. We consider this flavored coffee a smooth, refreshing blend.

Add extra holiday flair: Garnish with chocolate chips.

Chocolate mint lovers gather round! This cup of coffee has left every member of my family speechless (in the best way). Phenomenal, smooth, mint flavor with a complimentary hint of mocha. – Shyane

Tip #2: Turn your coffee into a perfect after-dinner cocktail

It’s time to indulge in a warm holiday after-dinner drink. Add some brown sugar and shot of your favorite whiskey to the top of your coffee, then pour cold heavy cream over the back of a spoon (helping the cream stay on top of the drink).

Our Irish Cream flavored coffee is a great way to enjoy an after-dinner treat or a morning delight. As stated on the bag, it’s indulgently creamy! Unlike a traditional dessert, our Irish Cream coffee is calorie free, perfect for people who don't want to overindulge (especially with other holiday goodies!)

Add extra holiday flair: Garnish with whipped cream.

Tip #3: Warm the soul with peppermint

Create a homemade holiday coffee drink with a few simple ingredients, including a cup of coffee, a dash—or a generous pour—of peppermint syrup, and a splash of vodka (if you’re on the nice list). This warm delight is the perfect drink to share with family and friends!

Described as immensely satisfying, our White Russian flavored coffee is a velvety mix of coffee liqueur and cream. This fan-favorite is a smooth and rich blend with bold flavors, like a scrumptious dessert for all to enjoy! 

Add extra holiday flair: Stir with a candy cane stick or garnish with crushed candy cane pieces.

I love this flavor!! Add a touch of heavy cream and it is the best! – Brent

Tip #4: Add sugared or chocolate-covered fruit

You read that right—fruit is a delicious accompaniment to a flavored coffee beverage. With a touch of holiday glam, you can incorporate sugared or chocolate-covered fruit to make your taste buds ring!

For sugared fruit such as raspberries and cranberries, lightly beat some egg whites and brush the fruit with the egg whites. Then, roll the fruit in sugar and place on a drying rack. Once it’s dried, it’s ready to be served.

For chocolate-covered fruit such as strawberries, melt milk chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and stir every 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted. Then, dip the fruit in the melted chocolate and chill until the chocolate sets.

Our Bog Grogg flavored coffee encompasses the cranberry flavor we all love and enjoy, especially around the holidays! With a hint of tartness and sweetness, Bog Grogg shines with its swirl of cream-flavored greatness.

Add extra holiday flair: Garnish with sugared cranberries and cinnamon.

Customer Review of Berres Brothers Bog Grogg

I was not sure what to expect from a cranberry-flavored coffee, but I LOVE it! It's really different: creamy and cranberry-ie (that's a new word just to describe this coffee). If you like cranberries, try it, you'll love it! Another tasty Berres Brothers Coffee for the win! - Abbey

Tip #5: Make any coffee into an eggnog latte

What’s an infamous drink that’s known to be savored over the holidays? Eggnog! Turn your coffee into an eggnog latte in just a couple steps.

Brew a cup of strong coffee or a shot of espresso and warm up some eggnog (or dairy free eggnog)! Then, whisk the eggnog until it’s frothy and pour it into your coffee.
