"My best friend's husband gave me this recipe. When he was young, his uncle who owned a restaurant in Mexico City made this special drink for him. It has been a favorite in our house for many years."

  1. Bring the water, sugar, cinnamon, and clove to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then remove from the heat, stir in the coffee grounds, cover, and steep for 5 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and chocolate syrup, then strain through several layers of cheesecloth to remove the coffee grounds and spices. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

I'm not sure what coffee blend would work the best with this recipe. I used the Duncan Donuts and it seemed a bit too acidic.

WOW! This is an awesome drink to warm you up. I was tempted to make myself a grownup coffee drinktoday but still had tons of snow shoveling to do so this looked like the right thing, and it was....

I was looking for something different for an all-night study session from the ingredients in my kitchen. I made this recipe without chocolate and with steamed milk in a french press. It worked...

I thought this was good. I am going to add it to my recipe box with the winter recipes because adding the clove reminded me of lightly spiced Christmas coffees. Or, I might try it again leaving ...

I've had this saved in my recipe box for about couple years and today we finally tried and oh my gosh! this coffee is awesome!!! we followed the recipe exactly and loved it. We'll make many time...
