Ever had a Mexican Mocha Recipe?

It’s a cafe mocha drink with the addition of rustic spices and spicy heat!

When I step into a coffee shop, it’s the first thing I look for on the menu. This rich blend of coffee and cream with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper makes this warming beverage even more stimulating.


The spices add an extra layer of warming-power that makes my throat tingle and my heart happy.

My recipe today is written for one beverage. Yet, this is a great mix to make in larger batches for edible gifts this season.

Just imagine packaging up a jar of Mexican Mocha Recipe Mix with some aromatic roasted coffee beans, and a cute little instruction tag.

Who wouldn’t want that?!

Or what about tailgating?  Hanging in the parking lot with friends on a chilly autumn day would be much more toasty with a Mexican Mocha in your hands.

Personally, I like to make a large batch of Mexican Mocha Mix to keep in the pantry for rainy days.

    Is regular whipping cream the same as California cream??

      Hi, Audrey, yes. I just like to help spread the word about California dairy. It pretty good stuff!

    I have never added cayenne to any drink, but am thinking it is time! This sounds so cozy and comforting. Kind of perfect for today since it is snowing. Oh and I love the idea of gifting this. Fun!

    I love the spiciness of this; I usually use a disc of Mexican chocolate but this makes it much easier. No surprise if I could see this with a bit of tequila right?

    Nice! I always enjoy adding a hint of cinnamon and chili heat to chocolate!

    This is a great idea, but i think it needs more cocoa, cinnamon and sugar. The predominant taste is the cayenne for me.
