Boozy salted caramel iced coffee: The best breakfast-cocktail hybrid ever?

Jul 16, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. ET

Your morning coffee doesn't have to be boring. This spiked version gives you a little extra fuel to your normal morning cup of joe. Now, I wouldn't recommend giving this drink a try on a Monday morning, but it is the perfect way to start the weekend. Ice-cold, with just a hint of caramel and rum flavors... What's not to love?

If iced coffee isn't your thing, you could also make this with hot coffee. I think it would make the perfect ski slope cocktail in the winter. However, until the snow starts falling, I recommend drinking this iced-style by the pool.
