It is cold here in Colorado, not just a ‘I need a winter hat to go outside’ cold, more like ‘I need to cover every inch of exposed skin’ cold. Along with the cold came a foot of snow, both of which has had a profound side effect – I am officially in the holiday spirit! Bring on the egg nog and Christmas music! So now that I have been bitten by the bug, I wanted to share a recipe that is perfect for this time of year making each day a little more festive. This Holiday Spice Coffee is a great way to add a subtle spice to your everyday cup of coffee. It would also be a simple way to fancy-up coffee served with Thanksgiving pie or a Christmas brunch. Enjoy!
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon cloves
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
Add a 1/4 teaspoon of the spice mix per 1/8 cup coffee grounds before brewing or French pressing.
