    Did you know that you can make your own Kahlua/Tia Maria-style coffee liqueur at home? It's surprisingly easy to do. Just infuse, sweeten and then serve it on the rocks or mix it as you would Kahlua or Tia Maria.

    OK, this is a weird one, but I'm told that it's surprisingly good. Apparently, the Muscatel wine is dark and sweet enough to go well with coffee, cinnamon and orange zest. Who knew?
