    littleturtle's Note:

    A Creole flambéed dessert coffee that is still served in grand style at some of New Orleans finest restaurants. This is a very special after-dinner drink, spectacular for entertaining. Can be prepared at the table with lots of fanfare to impress the guests. There are special brulot bowls made to prepare this drink, but a round, chafing dish works well. If you don't care about fancy presentation, you can just use a saucepan over low heat on the stovetop instead.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a grinder or mortar and pestle, grind together orange and lemon zests, spices, pecans, and sugar until finely powdered.
    2. 2
      Transfer ground nut/spice mixture to brulot bowl or chafing dish or large saucepan.
    3. 3
      Place dish directly over heat source with the flame on low; add Cognac and liqueur.
    4. 4
      Just as liquid starts to simmer, half fill a metal ladle with the liquid and ignite (I use a long grill lighter to do this and keep a lid for the pan handy: it can be a bit intimidating once the whole thing is ignited; if the flames get to high for you to handle, you can just put the lid on the pan and the flame will go out and you can try again).
    5. 5
      Return flaming liquid to dish to ignite the rest, and stir until sugar dissolves.
    6. 6
      As flame begins to subside, slowly stir in coffee.
    7. 7
      Ladle coffee into brulot cups or coffee cups, and serve hot.
    8. 8
      Can also be served cold for a fancy iced coffee cocktail (coffee ice-cubes work the best, so the drink isn't diluted as the ice melts); shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and serve in champagne glasses.
