What is spirited coffee?
Alcoholic spirits and liqueurs can be added to coffee, often sweetened and with cream floated on top. These beverages are often given names according to the alcoholic addition:

Black coffee is served with
brandy, or marc, or grappa, or other strong spirit.

Irish coffee is
with Irish whiskey, sugar, and cream. There are many variants, essentially the same but with the use of a different spirit:
__________________________________________________________

Irish coffee (see National Irish Coffee Day)
According to San Francisco history, this legendary drink was created in 1952 at the uena Vista, the now landmark restaurant and bar. Apparently the owner, Jack Koeppler, read about a hot coffee and whiskey beverage that was tasted in Ireland by the travel columnist, Stanton Delaplane. Mr. Koeppler was so intent on making this drink perfectly he traveled to Ireland to confer with it's creator, Shannon Airport bartender Joe Sheridan. Through the years, the Buena Vista recipe has been borrowed and slightly modified by each bartender who serves it. The following recpe is an
adaptation from the original.

   1 Irish Coffee glass, preheated
    3/4 cup full city roast brewed coffee
   2 teaspoons sugar
   1 jigger Irish whiskey (never use scotch)
   1/4 cup lightly whipped cream

Pour hot coffee in the heated glass. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Mix in the whiskey. Top with whipped cream. Serves one.

   1/4 cup lightly whipped cream

   10 ounces French Roast brewed coffee
   1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
   1 cube sugar
   1 1/2 jiggers brandy

   1 1/2 jiggers Kahlua liqueur

Cafe Diablo
This showy drink combines spiced brandy, Grand Marnier, and a strong African roast such as Kenyan or Sumatran. Mason's Restaurant used to create this popular drink tableside, using a saucepan and igniting the brandy before ladling the potent drink into a demitasse cup. It is no longer available at the restaurant (for the obvious fire-hazard reasons), but can certainly be recreated in your own home for special guests. The proportions have been changed to accommodate a coffee mug.

   1 12-ounce coffee mug, preheated
   2 cubes sugar
   1 1/2 jiggers brandy
   1/2 jigger Grand Marnier
   5-8 whole cloves
   1 strip orange peel
   1 strip lemon peel
   8 ounces Kenyan or Sumatran brewed coffee

Gently heat all of the ingredients except the coffee in a chafing dish or, if one is not available, a saucepan. Pour the hot coffee into coffee mug. The brandy should begin to release its aroma after a few minutes. At this point, ignite the brandy and allow the flames to burn for 15-20 seconds, then ladle the brandy mixture over the hot coffee. Mix the coffee and brandy together. Serves one.
