Southern Living Coffee Recipe: Mexican Coffee Recipe

Another fantastic Southern Living coffee recipe sent in by Shannon. :) This delightful mix combines the rich brewed coffee you love, but adds a burst of sweetness and spiciness...and of course a huge dollop of sweetened whipped cream for good measure!

Mexican Coffee
1/2 cup ground dark roast coffee
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 cups water
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sweetened whipped cream
Garnish: ground cinnamon

Place coffee in coffee filter or filter basket; add cinnamon and nutmeg. Add water to coffeemaker; brew according to manufacturer's instructions.Combine brown sugar, chocolate syrup, and milk in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Stir in coffee and vanilla. Serve immediately with a dollop of whipped cream; garnish, if desired.
