    I think Allen's Coffee Brandy is the preferred choice of drunks here in Maine . . . ;) :)

    Me . . . I stick with my Woodchucks.

    Sounds like Maine's answer to Kahlua.

    It is an easy to hide drink, just put it in a mug and add a bit of milk.

    Maybe because there are a lot of Mainiacs working in CT . . . a lot migrated south in the 1980s for better paying jobs. Some stayed. ;) :)

    Might have to get a bottle shipped up to here. I didn't know it was a "Maine" only thing. Kinda like Ployes, Chicken Stew, "coultons", fiddleheads....

    We used to add some coffee brandy (or brandy in general) to a nice hot cup of coffee on a cold winter day. We called that a Coffee Royal - really heated you up when it was cold outside.

    You got me on "coultons" . . . no idea of what these are.

    Oh . . . and don't forget poutine . . . coming from The County I know you know about poutine -- the traditional poutine and not just a bunch of melted cheese and instant gravy on top of the French fries.

    I remember ,one of my 1st jobs, I worked for some Italian plumbers.Occasionally we would stop at his grandmother's house and have coffee in the am. She would always serve the coffee with grappa (and she was liberal with the grappa). I remember starting the work day with a little buzz after a couple of cups..:)
