A Spirited Coffee with Café Brûlot

Posted on: January 4th, 2013 by fcasio No Comments

In our dining room different aromas fill the air. One of the most notable scents of the winter season is Café Brûlot. You can warm your belly and your home at the same time.

The photo credit goes to our friends Chef Hugo and Tracy of Hugo’s Restaurant from a recent visit to Brennan’s.

Café Brûlot

Serves 2


1 Lemon

1 Orange

2 Dozen whole cloves

1.5 oz DeKuyper Triple Sec

1 oz Brandy

2 Cinnamon sticks

1.5 cups strong black coffee




Peel lemon & orange in one long spiral. Insert cloves at tone inch intervals. Heat triple sec, brandy and cinnamon sticks in a chafing dish. When hot, carefully ignite the mixture with a long match. Spear the prepared lemon and orange peels at one end on the tines of a large fork. Hold the fork above the chafing dish & ladle the flaming brandy down the peels. Gradually add the coffee around the edge of the dish to extinguish the flames. Ladle the coffee into two heat-proof coffee cups.
