This is a flaming drink. Please read our notes about flaming drinks and be careful.


  • 1 oz. Galliano
  • Fill with Coffee
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon
  • 1 wedge Lemon
  • 1 pinch (freshly grated) Nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. Sugar
  • 1 puff Whipped cream

How to Make It

Squeeze a lemon wedge inside an Irish coffee mug, and wipe the juice all around the sides of the glass using the wedge. Empty excess juice. Next add the sugar and rotate the glass until the sugar completely covers the inside of the glass. Add the Galliano and set it alight so that it caramelizes the sugar; (keep the glass rotating to avoid it cracking from uneven heating.... done properly you can even use a thin crystal 'tulip glass' safely). Once the sugar has started to caramelize, add strong black coffee, top it up with the whipped cream, add the cinnamon and freshly ground nutmeg. Serve immediately.

Tip: Warm the Galliano first, it'll be easier to set alight.
