Mexican Coffee

Spice up your daily cup.

A bit of cinnamon and nutmeg (and a pinch of cayenne) give your coffee some bite. Cocoa and sugar add a note of sultry sweetness. And warm milk smoothes it all out for a perfectly flavorful cup.

01 Mix the sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne powder together in a large mug.

02 Pour in the coffee.

03 Pour in the warm milk or half and half.

04 Top with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

05 Serve and enjoy.
