A savory Mexican coffee—just perfect for topping off an intimate outdoor dinner.

Yield: 4 mugs


  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 2 cups strong hot coffee
  • Whipped cream and ground cinnamon, for garnish


1. Place the chocolate syrup, cream, cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg in a blender. Pulse twice, then blend to thicken, about 1 minute.
