Boozy Coconut Coffee
An easy coconut coffee recipe with rum...sooo good!
- 4 oz. coconut milk
- 4 oz. strong coffee
- 1-2 oz. coconut rum
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Heat coconut milk on the stove, frothing with a hand frother. (if you have an espresso machine, use your frothing wand). Heat only to 145 degrees.
- While your milk is heating, make your coffee.
- Put rum and brown sugar in a mug, add your coffee and stir.
- Pour your frothed milk on top.
- Sprinkle with coconut shavings if desired.
Coconut milk burns at a lower temperature than cow's milk, so be sure you don't over-heat your milk. If you find the drink is cooler than you like, heat the coffee portion further to compensate.
A candy thermometer or meat thermometer works great for reading the temperature! If you don't have either, trial and error works, too!
