Tequila Kahlua Coffee



It’s been gray and rainy for about a month now. Monsoon season. I do love the chilly weather, as opposed to the scorching heat of summer, but there are times when I need to warm up. Coffee is always a great choice but Tequila Kahlua coffee is even better.

Tequila Kahlua coffee is not gourmet coffee

Yes, I am a coffee person. Tea, too, but not as much as coffee. And I do love to experiment with ways on how to enjoy a cup of this dark aromatic drink. I like it plain, I like it fancy, I like it spiced, I even like it cold sometimes. I like it with chocolate and I like coffee in my dessert too. And, yes, I like to spike my coffee with alcohol occasionally. Like this Tequila Kahlua coffee.

How to make a cup of this warming drink?

I brew my coffee as usual. Then, I measure the spirits that will go into it. It is quite alright to mix them together.

The hot drink is stirred and topped with whipped cream. It’s warming and rich and so good.
