If you prepare this at the table, it is even more festive—ladling flaming coffee into cups is a showstopper. Remove zest with a paring knife, avoiding any white pith.
  • 8 sugar cubes
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • 1 small stick cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. whole cloves
  • ½ cup brandy or bourbon
  • 3 cups hot, freshly brewed dark roast coffee, preferably with chicory
  1. Rub sugar cubes with orange and lemon zest. Place sugar cube in each of 8 demitasse cups or small mugs. 
  2. Heat cinnamon stick, orange and lemon zests, cloves and brandy together in chafing dish. Flame mixture by igniting with a long match, and carefully add hot coffee. Stir, and ladle mixture into prepared cups.
