It’s been long enough since the beginning of the school year that we think we should all be back in our routines by now. The problem is, part of that routine includes getting up that much earlier to get everything ready for school. You have to make the lunches, wake the kids up, make breakfast, wake the kids up again, get yourself ready for work, and get the kids up one last time. Sure, it’s a routine, but it’s one that’s likely to leave you exhausted before you head out the door.
On top of that whole morning rigamarole, you have the after school home routine to deal with. You’re probably going to want a drink at this point, so why not make it a drink that’ll perk you up, and give you that last little bit of energy you need to finish out the day? Cafe Loco from Sauza is the perfect cocktail to give you that extra edge, while at the same time taking the edge off of the day.
Unlike yesterday’s drink, which contains Ghost Peppers, this Loco cocktail isn’t in danger of burning a hole in your mouth. It will, however, wake you up with a jolt! Plus, it looks kinda like a hot chocolate, so you don’t have to tell your kids that you need an afternoon drink to deal with them. Here’s the recipe –
- 1 ½ parts Sauza® Blue Reposado 100% Agave Tequila
- ½ part Kamora Coffee Liqueur
- 4 parts coffee
- 2 tsp. cinnamon sugar (1 part cinnamon, 4 parts sugar) plus more for dusting
- Whipped cream
- Cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
Preparation: Combine hot coffee and tequila. Mix in cinnamon and sugar until dissolved. Float whipped cream on top and dust with cinnamon-sugar. Garnish with cinnamon sticks (optional) and enjoy!
