Transcript:Flaming Spanish Coffee RecipeHi, I’m JJ Johnson here to show you how to make a Flaming Spanish Coffee on About.com. Making your after dinner coffee this way can add some pizzazz to you party.
Flaming Spanish Coffee IngredientsYou will need some:
- Wedges of Lemons or Limes to rim the glass
- Sugar to stick to the citrus on the rim
- A high proof alcohol to get the fire started. I prefer Rum, but you could use Vodka for the same results – slightly different taste
- Grand Marnier
- Coffee of course
- And Whipped Cream you could use store bought, but I prefer homemade Chantilly Cream
Brew the CoffeeFirst brew the coffee. Then rim the stemware with the wedge of fruit and dip the glass in sugar.
Prepare the AlcoholPut half a shot of the high proof alcohol, here I use Rum, in the glass. Then prepare two shot glasses, each ½ full, one with Kahlua the other with Grand Marnier. And finally fill a ladle with some more Grand Marnier.
Caramelize the SugarTilt the glass about 45 degrees and ignite the alcohol with a long lighter. Rotate the glass to caramelize the sugar. Pour in the ½ shot of Grand Marnier Notice how the flame changes color and then pour the Kahlua.
Do not pour directly from the bottle and do not use 151-proof rum; it is too flammable.
Add Coffee and CreamAfter the sugar has been caramelize pour the coffee in. The flame will go out. But your not done with the show yet. Float the cream on top.
Finish With More Flaming Grand MarnierLight the ladle filled with Grand Marnier and carefully pour the shaft of fire into the glass.
You might want to practice by pouring a shaft of liquid a few times. Cause missing the glass and setting the table on fire is a little embarrassing.
