Coffee....but not just any coffee.

Rudesheimer Koffee
—> 4cl Asbach Uralt
—> 3 cubes of sugar
—> Hot coffee (regular or decaf)
—> Whipped cream sweetened with vanilla sugar
—> Grated milk chocolate
Process:
– Pre-warm the brandy by using the double boiler method or warm it in a pan (never bring to a boil!).
– Place 2-3 cubes of sugar in an original Rüdesheimer Coffee cup,
- Pour over 4cl of the well-heated Asbach and light it by using a long match.
– Stir with a long-handled spoon to dissolve the sugar completely.
– Let it burn for about 1 minute, then pour in hot coffee to about 2 cm below the rim.
– Top off with a scoop of whipped cream and sprinkle with grated chocolate or cocoa.

Delicious!

Asbach was a favorite when I lived in Germany. Along with Kutcher Alt, and Henginger Pils.

It's EASY to make good liquor. It's even EASIER to make bad liquor!

Good lord, I'd actually start drinking beer again if I could get hold of a couple racks of real hefeweizen. And some day I'm going to figure out how to make a fake apfel corn.

Picked some of this up last year, before the disaster, at the distillery in Scotland. I love the peat.

Sampling my 2014 Cachaça that I made using sugar cane grown in my garden, It had a quite strong bagasse flavor for a few years, but that has diminished quite a lot in the last year and now I'm more hopeful that it might become a very nice drink in it's own right, rather than just being a useful ingredient for blending.
