Cuban Hot Coffee

A low-calorie coffee cocktail for the holidays
Cuban Coffee


If you aren’t in the mood for a cold mojito, but want to put a little Latin spice in your drink, try this coffee drink made with gold rum and crème de cacao. It will warm you up right down to your toes. Most of the time, crème de cacao wouldn’t be considered “slimming,” but in this recipe, it’s the only thing that’s high in calorie.


  • 1 Cup hot coffee
  • 1 Ounce gold rum
  • 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 Ounce brown creme de cacao


Heat the liquors in a heat-resistant glass, add sugar, and fill with coffee. Stir and serve.

Cuban Shopping Tip

Basic Latin ingredients include rice, achiote oil, adobo seasoning, and beans which can all be found in the ethnic aisle of your local grocery store.

Cuban Cooking Tip

Latin food often packs a lot of heat, so try to moderate the amount of chiles and spices you use in your dish.
