  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

For his Mexican riff on Irish Coffee, Bryan Dayton swaps in tequila for the whiskey, sweetens the drink with agave nectar and dusts the top with ground cinnamon.

  1. 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  2. 3 ounces hot brewed coffee
  3. 1 1/2 ounces tequila, preferably El Tesoro añejo
  4. Dollop of unsweetened whipped cream, for garnish
  5. Pinch of ground cinnamon, for garnish
  1. In a warmed mug or heatproof glass, stir the agave nectar into the coffee until incorporated. Stir in the tequila, then garnish with the whipped cream and cinnamon.
