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.

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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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

Notes

 
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.

    Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard
    Decadent Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard is the perfect low-calorie dessert for the holidays. Many of us look forward to having pumpkin pie once a year on Thanksgiving but we may not want all the extra calories. Give this recipe a try - you'll get all the pumpkin pie goodness with 1/2 the calories.  If you want a lighter dessert, but still want all of the flavors of your traditional pumpkin pie, try making this simple pumpkin custard instead. This pumpkin custard is basically a pumpkin pie without the pie shell. In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don't use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can't find fresh pumpkin.
