Mexican Coffee – Make This Amazing Tequila Coffee Cocktail

Mexican Coffee Cocktail
Mexican Coffee Cocktail

I’m going to say something that might piss off many people, but this is way better than an Irish coffee. Don’t get me wrong, the original Irish coffee is excellent, but the flavors and spices in this make it a winner. Replacing the Irish whiskey with tequila makes this taste quite a bit different.

NOTE: I have simple syrup listed here, but use piloncillo if you want to make this right. Piloncillo is a Mexican unrefined cone block of sugar with a ton of flavor. (As an aside, brown sugar is close but not the same. Brown sugar is regular old white sugar with molasses added back in.) Piloncillo is natural, unrefined, delicious brown sugar, and it costs almost nothing. If there isn’t a Mexican market where you live, I’m sure you can order it online. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top, and you have just made a coffee that no coffee house can match. Unless they also make Mexican coffee. Then yes, in those cases, they can match it.

Mayan Mule – Make This Delicious Tequila Variation of the Moscow Mule

Mayan Mule Cocktail

The tequila variation of the Moscow Mule substituting tequila/mezcal for vodka. While the original has a more clean and refreshing ginger beer and lime taste, the tequila adds an excellent cactus taste to this one. If you use a smoky mezcal, you get an even stronger cactus to taste with some smoke flavor. Put a little Tajin or chilies spices on top, and you’re good to go.

St. Rita Cocktail – Make This Delicious Floral Margarita

Honestly, once you have a St. Rita, you will not be satisfied with a regular margarita again. Well… I mean, I don’t know… maybe you will… I can’t tell you, and everyone has a different taste. My parents first introduced me to this cocktail in 2008 and that’s around when everyone else was first discovering it. St. Germain was launched in 2007, and as a way to market it, the company created variations of classic cocktails using its liqueur. It’s not vintage, but it’s damn good.
