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.
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.
I pour my coffee into a mug.
And add the spirits.
The hot drink is stirred and topped with whipped cream. It’s warming and rich and so good.

- 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
- 1/8 cup tequila
- 1/8 cup Kahlua

- Top with whipped cream or just plain cream. Add sugar to taste, stir and enjoy!
