No one knows where, when, how or why this cocktail got it name: the only coffee that is involved in its mixing are the beans that are applied as the garnish before the cocktail is served.
- Brandy – 3 parts
- Port – 1 part
- Egg Yolk –1
- Sugar – 1 tsp, per glass
- Ice Cubes
- Coffee Beans to garnish
- Half fill the shaker with ice cubes.
- Add the brandy, port, sugar and egg yolk.
- Shake well.
- Strain into an old-fashioned glass or a cocktail glass.
- Float a few roasted coffee beans on top to garnish.
Note: Instead of coffee beans, you can also use grated nutmeg to garnish.
