Spanish Coffee

Spanish Coffee

It was a cold and rainy day on Thanksgiving so my husband decided to make us each a Spanish coffee. What could be tastier than hot coffee with Kahlua, rum, a bit of triple sec, and homemade whipped cream? What made this drink extra special was the cinnamon and sugar rim that my husband caramelized with my new Fujima mini cooking torch. It made this warm and comforting drink so delicious!

How to Make a Spanish Coffee:


  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon (more if desired)
  • Lime
  • 1 oz of Kahlua
  • 1 oz of rum
  • Dash of triple sec
  • Coffee to the top
  • Whipped Cream
  • Dash of nutmeg

Spanish Coffee

Combine the sugar and cinnamon together and mix well. Pour the mixture onto a small plate. Rub the rim of the coffee mug with lime then place upside down on the plate with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Spin the mug on the plate to evenly coat the rim with cinnamon and sugar. Carefully torch the cinnamon-coated rim of the mug with the cooking torch until it is caramelized and hardened.

Pour the Kahlua, rum, and dash of triple sec into the mug then add the coffee to the top. Add a dollop of whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg. Serve immediately and enjoy!
