I don’t know about you, but it’s been many years since I’ve had the chance to put on a sparkly top and go out drinking for New Year’s Eve. With young kids and no readily available babysitter, our best New Year’s Eve in recent years was spent watching “Pitch Perfect” and polishing off a cheese platter and bottle of prosecco. Ah, parenthood.

But it’s nice to dust off the heels and squeeze yourself into some skinny jeans every once in a while to ring in the new year like real people whose lives haven’t been taken over by sleep-depriving tiny humans. That is, if you can stay awake till the ball drops.

I’ve always subscribed to the Karen Walker school of alcohol + caffeine, and so here are my five suggestions for combining cocktails with coffee so you can stay awake past 9:00 p.m. Happy New Year!
