Mexican coffee is a great after dinner drink.

Not long ago I was wanting to try something a little different. I don’t usually drink coffee in the evening, not because it keeps me awake but I just don’t want to make a pot when I’m probably going to be the only one drinking it. I will say it would be nice after dinner when entertaining guests. Serve with, or instead of, dessert.

This after dinner drink uses one of my favorite liqueurs, Kahlua. I really only like tequila in drinks, not as a shot, and the blend with the coffee liqueur is a winning combination. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you know I always say to use the best ingredients you can afford. There are other coffee liqueurs out there, Kahlua is the most well known. Use what you like as far as the liqueur and tequila. I used a gold tequila which is a bit smoother than a white tequila.

This is the third week in the six week winter warm up series. My other posts were Hot Citrus Cider and Original Irish Coffee. Be sure to check them out as well as the others my blogger friends are posting today. Those links are below.
