Why I Love This Recipe

This is an EXCELLENT dessert coffee drink

Hubers Alex Perez is generally regarded as the Baryshnikov of Spanish Coffee. He has been serving as many as 200 of these flaming drinks a day for 17 years. Hubers (Portland, Oregon)... One of the things I miss... This is my approximation from what I can remember:

Ingredients You'll Need

Lime wedge
Granulated Sugar
1 oz Bacardi 151 Rum
1/2 oz Gran Marnier
Flamage (a long match or a long spoon)
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
Ground Nutmeg
Coffee To Fill The Glass
Thickened (Not Whipped) Cream


Run a lime wedge lightly around the rim of a coffee glass.

Dip the rim in granulated sugarsugar.

Add the 151 and Gran Marnier.

With a long match, carefully light the liqueurs (this can also be done with a bar spoon, dip spoon in liquor, light spoon then return spoon to glass)

Swirl the glass to melt the sugar on the rim.

Sprinkle with Nutmeg (It sparks, it's cool)

Pour in the Kahlua and then add the coffee to within 1/2 inch of the rim.

Top with lightly beaten whipped cream (Just enough to thicken it slightly)

Sprinkle with another pinch of nutmeg.

Serve immediately.

Absolutely Delish!!!!
