A bit of cinnamon and nutmeg (and a pinch of cayenne) give your coffee some bite. Cocoa and sugar add a note of sultry sweetness. And warm milk smoothes it all out for a perfectly flavorful cup.
Mix the sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne powder together in a large mug.
Pour in the coffee.
Pour in the warm milk or half and half.
Top with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
Serve and enjoy.
