We Colombians love our coffee and I find it hard to start the day without a hot cup of black coffee in the morning. Carajillo is a simple coffee-based hot drink originally from Spain, but very popular in Colombia. It is usually made with brandy or rum and served in a small shot cup. Although I don’t start my day with this sort of coffee drink it is the perfect ending to any meal!
(4 to 6 servings)
- 3 cups of fresh brewed dark roast coffee
- Sugar, to your taste
- Brandy or rum to your taste
- Place sugar in a shallow dish. Moisten the rim of an espresso or shot cup with a dampened paper towel, then dip in sugar.
- Add the sugar and rum to the hot coffee. Fill the cup with Carajillo. and serve immediately.
