Introduction: Flamingo Mud Bath Coffee
I felt like a festive beverage was missing from my home spa- bath robe day. So, this bittersweet cognac- spice flavoured beverage was born. This way my pet flamingo can have a bath day as well.
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 teaspoon instant coffee (or 1.5 teaspoon instant coffee decaff)
1.5 teaspoon cognac
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon clove (or just half of the cinnamon you used)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla powder
milk (or soy milk)
sweetened condensed milk
1 kebab stick (you will need to cut it to fit your glass size)
jelly bean candy

Step 1: Making the Coffee
Place powdered sugar, vanilla powder, instant coffee, clove and cinnamon in a small glass.
Add hot water (fill the glass halfway) and stir.
Step 2: Making the Two Colour Effect
Add a little bit of sweetened condensed milk in a new glass, in order to create a two colour effect to your drink.
The more sweetened milk you add, the thicker the white bottom layer will be. I chose to add a small amount, like shown in the picture above.
Step 3: Adding Milk and Cognac to Your Mixture.
Pour the mixture you made in Step 1 in the glass with the condensed milk.
Now add milk until the glass is full, like in the picture.
Add the cognac.
Step 4: Making the Jelly Bean Decorative.
Cut the kebab stick, according to your glass size.
I cut 1/3 of mine, to fit a small glass without protruding.
Place the jelly beans as shown in the pictures.
Step 5: Enjoy!
This beverage can be served warm, or cool with ice.
