Have you been enjoying your infused water? We have. As we told you, we started with blueberry. orange and rosemary flavored water. Then we moved on to lemon strawberry water for a few days, and now we have some refreshing cucumber water infusing. It has encouraged us to drink more water, and it is certainly tasty!
This week we are sharing a recipe fit for a cold winter day or evening – Spanish Coffee. Spanish coffee combines the flavors of rum, coffee and espresso to create a delicious cocktail fit for a brunch, after dinner drink or an evening cocktail.
Many countries enjoy a little something extra added to their coffee. Ireland enjoys a splash of Irish cream in their coffee. (We shared our version of Irish Coffee with you in February of 2018 with our Gold Medal Coffee recipe.) Italy has Caffe’ Corretto which adds grappa or sambuca. In Spain they like to add a little rum to the mix!
To make Spanish Coffee you will need rum, triple sec, Caffe’ Borghetti espresso liqueur and freshly brewed coffee. We also used whipped cream and grated nutmeg for garnish.
