I am not so brave when it comes to drinking straight liquor, but I love playing mixologist on occasion.
Usually when I make mudshakes I use vodka, but I discovered this locally made flavoured white rum that is just smooth and wonderful and has two flavours, coconut and cappuccino.
Note: Not to be consumed as a mid-morning caffeine fix and not to be sipped from a sippy cup or thermos… at least not until 5:30 pm.
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons sugar (or Splenda)
pinch of cinnamon powder
1/4 cup hot water (freshly boiled)
1 cup milk (cold)
2 shots of cappuccino flavoured white rum
(or your favourite coffee liqueurs such as Kahlua,Tia Maria, Sheridan’s, or white rum, coffee flavoured brandy or vodka if you prefer)
dollop of sweetened whipped cream
whole coffee beans for garnish
– Stir first 5 ingredients together.
– Add milk and cappuccino flavoured white rum.
– Chill well and fast inside the freezer.
– Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream, then before drinking, mix in the cream with a dainty slim straw and sip.
