Iced Mandarin Orange Café Mocha

A unique and refreshing blend of flavors.

The flavor of chocolate, coffee, mandarin orange, cinnamon and nutmeg tastes wonderful together……and over ice it’s a real treat.

In this refreshing iced café mocha drink, cream is added to the serving glass right at the end.

And the trick is not to stir the cream…so that the drink has two layers where the creamy layer floats to the top.

It looks so pretty to serve the drink in layers.

I especially like clementine oranges because they don’t have seeds and are easy to peel.

A clementine is a variety of a mandarin orange and is super juicy and sweet.

So make sure to have extra clementine oranges on hand for the chef to snack on when making this tasty drink.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Iced Mandarin Orange Coffee

Milk, cocoa powder, instant coffee, juice from clementine oranges, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and a small pinch of ground cloves (optional), half and half (or cream)…and…

Sugar on Plate

…granulated sugar

Here’s how to make it.

Pour Milk in Pan

In a small pan, add milk…

and sugar.

Add Coffee in Pan

Next add instant coffee granules,

Add Cinnamon in Pan

…cinnamon, and

Add Nutmeg in Pan

…nutmeg.

Mandarin Orange Juice in Pan

add juice from 3 clementine oranges.

Stir Cocoa in Pan

Heat the mixture on medium heat while constantly stirring.

Warm Cocoa in Pan

Try to keep the heat just low enough so the mixture doesn’t boil.

If it does start to boil, turn the heat down just a bit.

Continue stirring the mixture until all of the ingredients are combined and…

Stir Cocoa in Pan

…the mixture starts to thicken (about 6 minutes).

Then turn the heat off, move the pan off of the hot burner and let the mixture cool for about 15 minutes.

Stir it a few times while it’s cooling.

Fill two serving glasses with ice.

Pour the café mocha into a small pitcher or pouring measuring cup so it’s easier to pour in the serving glasses (instead of pouring it from the pan).

Pour the café mocha into the serving glasses leaving about 2 inches of space from the top for the half and half (or cream if preferred).

To the glasses, add half and half, or cream to the café mocha.

It looks pretty in the glass when serving if the half and half (or cream) is not stirred so the drink has a creamy layered look to it.

Add a few more ice cubes if there is room in the glass to top it off.

Then…

…garnish with a segment of clementine orange

Then it’s time to sit back, relax and…

…enjoy each and every sip.
