Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


In a small saucepan whisk half and half over a high heat until frothy, about 2 minutes. Keep reducing heat so the cream does not burn.
Divide hot coffee between 2 small cups. Stir in 1 tablespoon each crème de cacao, brandy and honey. Top with frothy half and half. Sprinkle with one of the toppings, if desired.
