    • 1/2 teaspoon orange rind (the colored part only, not the white pith, the colored part only, not the white pith)
    • 4 allspice berries
    • 2 whole cloves
    • 6 whole coffee beans
    • 1 1/2 cups brandy or 1 1/2 cups whiskey
    • 8 sugar cubes
    • 3 cups strong hot coffee
    • 1 cinnamon stick


    1. 1
      Prepare in a beautiful, heat-resistant bowl and serve with an attractive metal ladle (a great use for that silver bowl and ladle hidden in your cabinet), as the brûlot is prepared in the presence of your dinner guests.
    2. 2
      Combine all the ingredients in the bowl except the coffee and one cube of sugar.
    3. 3
      Heat the ladle, dip up a little of the liquid from the bowl, add the remaining sugar lump and ignite.
    4. 4
      Lower gently into the bowl so that the liquid is ignited.
    5. 5
      While it blazes, pour in the coffee slowly at one side of the bowl so as not to put out the flame; stir gently with the ladle, dipping up the flaming liquid and pouring it back into the bowl.
    6. 6
      When the flame dies out, serve in small coffee cups.
