come in from the cold...

When these two awesome men came in from the cold I knew I had to greet them with something special. I had just the thing! Rachel Rays Mexican Coffee. This is a family favorite with cinnamon and chocolate. We made the morning version without the liqueur. It hit the spot!

Happy Snow Shoveling!

Mexican Coffee
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray

4 scoops of ground coffee beans, Columbian or other variety - a coffee scoop is equivalent to a rounded tablespoon
1 scoop (rounded tablespoon) cocoa powder (we like the dark chocolate version)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon - eyeball it, plus a sprinkle for garnish
4 jiggers (1 ounce shots) coffee liqueur (recommended: Kahlua)
1 canister whipped cream with spray top


Place coffee, cocoa and cinnamon in a filter for coffee brewing. Make 4 cups of brewed mocha-cinnamon coffee. Pour a shot of coffee liquor in the bottom of a coffee mug. Pour in a serving of brewed mocha-cinnamon Mexican coffee. Top off the mug with a generous swirl of whipped cream and garnish with another sprinkle of cinnamon. Repeat for desired number of mugfuls!
