Mexican Coffee Cocktail

Cinco de Mayo is next week, and I have created the perfect after dinner drink to share with your friends and family…..a Mexican Coffee Cocktail! I was so excited when my new Hamilton Beach 2-Way FlexBrew® Coffee Machine arrived, and I knew exactly what I wanted to make…..

We all know how wonderful coffee is, and the addition of tequila, coffee liqueur and whipped cream is P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N!

Hamilton Beach provided me with this awesome new coffeemaker to review. All opinions are 100% mine.

This new 2-Way FlexBrew® Coffeemaker is one of the most flexible brewers ever. You can choose to brew either 12 cups on the traditional side {left}, or single serve {14 ounce} on the other side {right}.  On the single serve side, you can choose either K-Cup packs*, or fresh grounds.

You can purchase your very own FlexBrew® at Walmart, and you can enter to win one below….so keep reading. 😉

I am old old-school, so I always grind my coffee beans right before I am ready to brew my coffee…..

    Yes please, I would like one of those cocktails! I didn’t know that coffee and tequila actually play pretty well together ’til recently, and now I’m excited about the combo.

    That coffee maker looks pretty slick, too. Some day I will get a coffee maker so I can stop drinking crappy instant. 😛

  2. says

    Mmmmm! The first thing I saw tonight was your Mexican Coffee Cocktail! Sure wish I had one right now! Thank you for the giveaway, and for sharing both at Treasure Box Tuesday!! Pinning!

  3. says

    This recipe looks delicious and, I must say, I am completely intrigued by this coffeemaker. I love that the coffee can be brewed two ways, and, as much as I like the idea of the K-cups, I have yet to find one that yields strong enough coffee to suit my taste. Perhaps I’ll win and will be able to find out on my own. Thanks for the giveaway!
