Koffie Van Brunt

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Manami

This hot coffe and rum cocktail gets its name from the Dutch word for coffee (koffie) and the street (Van Brunt) where it is served at St John Frizell's Fort Defiance café-bar in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Bon Appetit Magazine, November 2009 edition. I am not a drinker now but the combination of this drink has got to be a winner! ;)

I ripped this recipe out of my Bon Appetit :) I like to have a 'special' drink for our Holiday dinners....and I knew this one would be a winner!! Of course DH and I had to try them before serving them to our company next Thursday for Thanksgiving :) I'm glad you posted it...we will always have it around now!! YUMMY!!
