What’s better on a chilly night than a hot coffee drink fireside? How about a fiery coffee drink tableside?
The flashy Spanish coffee presentation at the Four Seasons’ Talavera is one part classic cocktail, one part decadent dessert and one part entertainment.
Bartenders pour ½ ounce Bacardi 151 into a large, sugar-rimmed snifter, allow it to coat the inside of the glass and then flame it using a lighter on the bottom of the glass. While it’s burning, they sprinkle a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg into the drink. When the sugar begins to caramelize, they add ¼ ounce Cointreau, ¾ ounce Kahlua and 4 ounces coffee, and top it with two tablespoons whipped cream. Then they drizzle ¼ ounce crème de almond on top.
It warms the spirits, literally and figuratively.
($8 for locals in January and February)
