If you're anything like me, you swear that you're an antisocial zombie without your multiple daily cups of coffee. Often times, this leaves you in a position in which you forget how to partake in human interaction until you slowly start to become awake again. If you're a real coffee fan, you'll know that National Coffee Day is right around the corner on Saturday, September 29th. However, because it's on a Saturday (aka the unofficial official day for getting drunk BEFORE Sunday brunch), you'll want to check out the following boozy coffee drinks and brands... or at least attempt to make them yourself at home without burning your kitchen down. Let's get started.
