Flaming Coffees

(Modeled after the drink at the Historic Alex Johnson Hotel, Rapid City, South Dakota)

  • 2 oz Yukon Jack
  • 2 oz Grand Chambourd
  • 1 well-rounded Tbl Brown sugar
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Hot Coffee
  • whipped Cream

In one fire-proof pitcher place Yukon Jack

In another fire proof pitcher place Grand Chambourd and brown sugar

Light contents of first pitcher, swirling to heat through.

Pour flaming Yukon into second pitcher, swirling and pouring between pitchers to heat thoroughly. Divide contents between pitchers and sprinkle ground cinnamon into the flames for a sparkling effect. Continue swirling and pouring contents between pitchers.

Divide contents, still flaming, into two coffee mugs, sprinkle with cinnamon, and add 6 ounces of coffee to each mug, extinguishing the flames. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream and additional powdered cinnamon.


Combine the following ingredients:

  • 2 Bottles Red Wine
  • 1 to 1½ cup sugar
  • 1 stickcinnamon
  • 3 or 4 lemon slices, each studded with 3 or 4 cloves
  • 1 Orange, cut into small wedges

Heat all ingredients, except oranges, until nearly boiling. DO NOT BOIL!. Place an orange wedge in the bottom of each glass or mug and add Gluhwein. Recipe can be halved.

To save time when serving large groups, you can simply slice the orange and add it to the mixture when heating the Gluhwein.
