Café Brûlot

Yield 6 1/2 cups


  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 (1-ounce) bottle cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tablespoons whole cloves
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup orange-flavored liqueur*
  • 2/3 cup brandy
  • 5 cups hot, freshly brewed coffee
  • Garnish: orange strips

How to Make It

  1. Peel orange and lemon, each in one long strip. Squeeze orange, reserving 2 tablespoons juice. Reserve lemon for another use.

  2. Combine orange peel, lemon peel, and next 5 ingredients in a non-aluminum saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in reserved orange juice.

  3. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into coffee; discard solids; stir. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.

  4. *Note: For orange-flavored liqueur, we used Grand Marnier.
