Spiked Kaffee

In Rüdesheim, Germany, they drink an alcoholic coffee drink called Rüdesheimer Kaffee.  It was invented in 1957 by German television chef Hans Karl Adam.

It contains Asbach Uralt brandy, which is combined with sugar cubes and added to a cup.  In Rüdesheim, a cup that is specially designed for this beverage is used (see photo).  The brandy is flambeed and stirred until the sugar dissolves.  Strong coffee is added, followed by a topping of thickly whipped cream sweetened with vanilla sugar.  Chocolate flakes are scattered onto the cream as a garnish.

It was so delicious, I drank it all before I got a picture of the whipped cream and chocolate flakes!
