Mexican Coffee with dulce de leche {Cinco de Mayo}

I am a brand ambassador for Hamilton Beach and receive products you see here and others to facilitate my posts; all opinions are mine exclusively.


What to do with all that left over Cinco de Mayo tequila??  I never struggle with that question, but if you do, here is one option!

I hope your Cinco de Mayo was a festive one.  I began mine with the only way to start a day – with Mexican Coffee!  My Irish husband is rolling his eyes right now but I love tequila, like I really really love tequila and it goes surprisingly well with coffee.

It’s been in the triple digits here in Palm Springs (and its only the first week of May!) so I take my coffee iced.  You have probably seen this brilliant trick already around Pinterest, but to avoid watered down coffee, freeze your leftover coffee in ice cube trays – this works with tea as well.  Keep them black or add a bit of cream, whatever your preference.  I added a touch of cream to mine.

Mexican Coffee is simply coffee, tequila and whatever cream and sugar you like.  I wanted to really sweeten up my coffee, so today I am adding dulce de leche!

I start with the dulce de leche (see above) then add in coffee that I have chilled a bit in the refrigerator.  It doesn’t have to be ice cold because our ice is also coffee.

This creates a beautiful layer effect – great for entertaining… or just a morning when you need something special.

Then comes the best part – the tequila!

Next comes your cream, where the amount is totally up to you.  Coffee is such an individualized beverage.

Top with coffee ice, a sprinkle of cinnamon and you are good to go!

To make good coffee, you have to start with a great coffee maker.  My husband and I bought an expensive coffee maker some years ago and never had anything but issues with it.  It rarely made the full pot and it often leaked across the counters and onto the floor… bad.

I went back to tea.

As a brand ambassador for Hamilton Beach, I’ve been quietly hoping a coffee maker would arrive on my doorstep and the wait is no more!  I want to share the amazing Hamilton Beach FlexBrew  2-Way Coffee Maker, a revolution in the coffee world! It is super flexible as it allows you to brew either 12 cups traditionally, or single serve on the other side.  The single serve can be either fresh grounds OR K-Cup packs!! You must be freaking out right now.

I love that if I just need one cup before I head out of the house, I don’t have to make a whole pot.  Alternatively, K-Cup packs get expensive if you are making lots of them each day and a full pot is the better option. The choice is totally yours, and I’m a gal who likes choices.  This is also great for families who like their coffee at different times of the day or like specialty flavors. Love love love the FlexBrew!

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this particular challenge plus it really does give me a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, from just what I have witnessed, I basically trust as the commentary stack on that people today stay on point and not embark upon a soap box of some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this excellent point and although I do not necessarily agree with this in totality, I respect your perspective.
