- The Spanish love their coffee sweet and strong - make yours special with a splash of Kahlua.
- Prepare this recipe to the end of step 1 up to 1 day ahead. Cover and store in the fridge. Continue from step 2 just before serving.
WOW, truly outstanding. I eased back on the Kahlua by half (my preference). Coffee, cinnamon and cream how could you miss with this! It's truly indulgent and something worthy of sharing with your honey in special times. I'm SO glad that I tagged it in Photo Tag.
Before I served this to my MIL she told me not to experiment with her, I said I wasn't but I actually still did. LOL and when she had it, she exclaimed, "this is very very good!" Indeed it is rich, sweet and yet strong. I halved the recipe here btw and served it warm for my MIL and iced mine (just my own preference since it's hot today but I tasted it as is and liked it as well). Thanks, Sonya01!
