Many people have never tried instant coffee. All they know about it is that it was that warm drink their grandmothers used to prepare, like mine did every time we visited her in Mexico. She would add a little piece of cinnamon stick to flavor the milk before adding the coffee granules and sugar. For this recipe, I added some pumpkin pie spice. It’s a warm dessert in a cup that your friends and family will enjoy at next your holiday party. MORE + LESS -
