A New Orleans coffee speciality.
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon caster sugar
One thick piece of lemon peel
One thick piece of orange peel
1 stick of cinnamon
400ml freshly-made strong coffee
- Put the Grand Marnier, caster sugar, lemon and orange peel, cinnamon and cloves in a saucepan. Heat until the sugar dissolves, turn the heat off and remove the fruit peel, cinnamon and cloves. Add the coffee. Taste and add more sugar if it needs it. Stir and serve in espresso cups.
It won’t be a Café Brulot but you can use the same base recipe to make other liqueur-flavoured coffee. Use a nut-flavoured liqueur like Frangelico or an aniseed flavoured drink like Pernod instead of Grand Marnier. If you don’t have Grand Marnier, use Cointreau.
