Coconut Spiced Rum Mocha Latte!!!
I was at a loss about which recipe I wanted to share with you for this weekend, what with Thanksgiving and all. Most of you are probably cooked out for the weekend and might not want to start whipping up munchies for gameday. On top of that, the gang might not be as ravenous as they usually are when they come over, either. So I rattled the ol' noodle and decided to share with you a pretty cool latte drink that you can serve: Coconut Spiced Rum Mocha Latte! Hey, who's not going to want to check out one of these with those turkey leftovers?
Blue Chair Bay Rum recently released a Coconut Spiced Rum Cream. Holy freakin' moley! This is a tropical holiday in a bottle! It's crazy good. The minute I tasted it, I knew that it would be perfect in a coffee drink. After a couple of trial and errors (and a caffeine buzz to send me into next Thanksgiving), this java jolt evolved.
Coconut Spiced Rum Mocha Latte
(makes 6 mugs)
10 cups brewed coffee or espresso
1/3 C chocolate syrup
1 cinnamon stick
2 tsp vanilla
Steamed or Frothed Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum Cream
1. Brew the coffee or espresso.
2. Add the chocolate syrup, cinnamon stick and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
3. Steam or froth Coconut Spiced Rum Cream and pour into each mug.
4. Slowly pour the coffee into each mug.
5. Take a sip, kick back and enjoy.
(Note: between the chocolate syrup and the rum cream, the coffee is already sweet, but if you want to make it sweeter, you can add more sugar. I recommend brown sugar.)
And there you have it, Homegaters! Pretty quick and pretty simple. Hope you try this and let me know how you like it.
Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy all the games!
