Tropical Brazilian Latte

Tropical Brazilian LatteTropical Brazilian Latte is a tropic version of the famous coffee drink we all love. Check out this beverage seasoned with Brazilian mojo.

Brazil is a great coffee producing country, but it is also widely known for as a tropical paradise full of happy and welcoming people. The beaches and the seashore are the most wonderful in the world and nothing matches a nice afternoon, or evening, enjoying a sunset with a great drink on the side.

But we do have very cold and chili places too, where the perfect drink is something to warm you up. A moon rise at the mountains could not be more perfect if not accompanied by a hot coffee drink.

 

I use any type of commercial or gourmet Brazilian coffee for it.

Tropical Brazilian Latte

Ingredients

  • 1 shot of very strong Brazilian coffee, or espresso
  • 2 tsp of jigger coconut-flavored syrup
  • 1 tsp of pineapple-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tsp of Fra Angelico liqueur (optional, if used, subtract 1 tsp of coconut syrup)
  • 1 tiny pinch of cinnamon (not to be noticed)
  • 1 tiny pinch of cloves (not to be noticed)
  • 1/2 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Pour hot strong coffee in a mug.
  2. Add coconut syrup
  3. Add pineapple liqueur
  4. Add Fra Angelico liqueur
  5. Add the "unnoticeable" seasonings to the milk.
  6. Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat, about 5 minutes.
  7. When it's about to boil, turn of the heat and
  8. Immediately, stir warm milk into coffee mixture.
  9. Sprinkle latte with cinnamon and cloves, to taste. (optional)

We used to spend winter vacations at the beach here. The curious think about winter at the beach in North São Paulo is that you get hot days and cold nights; Iced softer drinks during the day and hot drinks at night. What could be more perfect?

    Oh my goodness, this sounds so delicious! I love, love, love pineapple liqueur and anything with coconut flavoring.

    While it’s been very hot here where I live, I am definitely saving this recipe for when it starts to cool. I can imagine just making a cup and relaxing in the cool night air.

    I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!
