Café Brûlot – New Orleans Flaming Coffee Recipe
Café Brûlot – New Orleans Flaming Coffee is a very impressive way to finish a wonderful meal.
Antoine’s is said to be the original inventor of the café brûlot but can be enjoyed in of New Orlean’s grand old French-Creole restaurants, like Arnaud’s, Antoine’s or Galatoire’s. A Café Brûlot is the grand finale of an equally grand meal – a flaming brandy-spiked coffee spiked with a touch of citrus and cinnamon.
It’s the perfect way to top off an evening of fine dining in New Orleans.
Cafe Brulot -New Orlean Flaming Coffee
I miss the days when dining in fine restaurants included something flambéed, flaming or being set on fire. This recipe is a very impressive end to a special meal.
- 1 orange peel cut into 1 by ⅛-inch strips
- 1 lemon peel cut into 1 by ⅛-inch strips
- 4 sugar cubes
- 6 whole cloves
- 1 2" stick cinnamon
- 1/4 Dark Rum
- 1/2 cup Grand Marnier liqueur
- 2 cups hot freshly brewed, strong black coffee, preferably with chicory
Place a medium saucepan or metal flame resistant bowl over low heat.
Add all ingredient except the hot coffee to the saucepan.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is warmed - if the mixture begins to bubble or boil remove from heat until it cools slightly.
Tilt the pan off the heat and, using a long match or lighter carefully light mixture.
Be careful the flames will be quite impressive.
While the mixture is still flaming slightly, slowly add hot coffee to the saucepan. It is impressive if you hold the coffee pot high above the bowl.
Immediately (the drink may still be flaming) ladle the coffee into demitasse cups. Use a long-handled metal ladle. Serve immediately
Be very careful if you decide to try this, the alcohol will flame. This is such a show stopper presentation, it's worth the risk.
This drink is traditionally made with brandy and curaçao, I like the dark rum and Grand Marnier. And it flames impressively.
You can buy coffee with chicory in some grocery stores or online. The two most popular brands are Community Coffee (my favorite) and Cafe Du Monde.
