What the heck is the point of a Crock-Pot cocktail? (Aside from the fact that you don’t have to stand over the stove?) Glad you asked. When you make these slow-cooker spiked cinnamon lattes, you can leave the boozy brew in your slow cooker on the low setting and it’ll stay warm for hours. So when you’re throwing a party, there’s no need to worry that your wintry sipper is cooling down. Now who wants seconds?
3 cups brewed espresso (or strong coffee)
4 cups whole milk
½ cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, plus more for finishing
7 ounces vanilla vodka
7 ounces Kahlúa
Whipped cream, for finishing
1. In a large slow cooker, mix together the espresso, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
2. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 3 hours. Mix in the vanilla vodka and Kahlúa.
3. To serve, ladle into mugs and top with whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon.
