Cheers–The Tandem Tasters often substitute flavored coffee for dessert. This one is simply delicious. This is a good brunch drink on a cold winter day.


4 ounces hot black coffee
1/2 – 1/1/2 ounces dark rum
2 ounces half and half
Nutmeg or/ and cinammon to taste


Pour the coffee and rum into a mug or Irish Coffee glass.
Float the cream on top.
Sprinke with nutmeg or cinammon


There are several variations of this pick-me-up coffee.
We also enjoy it with Tia Maria in place of rum.
If you use both it is called Calypso Coffee.
Substitute  cream or whipped cream for half and half.
A touch of vanilla is another flavorful addition.
