Café brûlot is a fun and dramatic cocktail that will light up your Mardi Gras celebration.
Looking for an entertaining way to celebrate Mardi Gras at home? Look no further than this café brûlot cocktail. To make this iconic New Orleans drink, brandy and Grand Marnier are infused with citrus peel and whole spices, and then set on fire with a long match. To finish the drink and act as a fire extinguisher, hot chicory coffee is poured in. And although it’s not included in the traditional recipe, I like my café brûlot with a pillowy topping of gently whipped cream. It’s hard to decide whether the pyrotechnics or enjoying the drink itself are the best part of this drink!

Coffee, coffee, coffee!! I love all-things coffee and can always use any excuse to add booze to my Joe…loving this Mardi Gras-inspired drink!
Thanks, Julia! I’m a coffee fiend, too, and it’s only better with booze in it! 😉
I NEED this in my life! Goodbye, Irish coffee. 🙂
Yes you do, Rachel! Definitely more exciting than an Irish coffee.
