Mexican Inspired Coffee

May 3rd, 2018 by

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo! If you’re unaware here’s a little background. The holiday itself is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Traditionally, this holiday is not celebrated as widely in Mexico as it is in the United States. The common method of celebration is with Mexican food, chips, and margaritas. Though we do love those, too, we got a little creative and we came up with this awesomely tasty Mexican inspired Tequila Coffee. This is perfect for that 5 o’clock thirst you may have on a Friday afternoon. It also works great as an after dinner treat too.

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces of hot brewed coffee
  • 1 ounce of coffee liqueur (Kahlua)
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila (tequila- rose cocoa cream)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 ounce whipped cream
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder (garnish)
  • 2 chocolate-covered coffee beans (garnish) (optional)

Directions:

  • Add the coffee, liqueurs, and sugar to your mug, then top with whipped cream. Finally, sprinkle the cocoa powder on the cream and enjoy!

We hope you love this delicious treat as much as we did making it. How did yours turn out? Let us know in the comments below!
