Spiced Cognac Coffee

“Vive la France” This spiced coffee is the perfect boozy hit after a dinner party.
5' + 5' preparation & cooking time
1 serve
Quatre Épices spice


  • 1 tsp of Quatre Épices by Camelēr Spice Co.
  • 50ml of Cognac such as Hennessy (If you have Grand-Marnier you can reduce the Cognac to 25 ml and add 25 ml of Grand-Marnier)
  • 75ml coffee
  • 1 tsp of brown sugar or agave is a good alternative
  • Whipped cream (double cream or heavy/whipping cream)
  • Coffee beans to decorate (optional)


  1. Brew the coffee as you do normally. Ideally you will need a double espresso or an Americano. It is perfectly okay to make it your favourite coffee by brewing it in a Stove top Coffee Percolator or in a Moka Pot if you do not have a coffee machine. Bialetti is one of the best traditional Moka Pot's.
  2. Add 1 tsp of the Quatre Épices and 1 tsp of the brown sugar to a tall glass. Then top up with the freshly brewed coffee. N.B. Make sure that there is a metal spoon in the glass to prevent cracking.
  3. Give all the above a good stir before you add the alcohol.
  4. Add the Cognac or the combination of the Cognac and Hennessy to the spiced coffee brew
  5. Top off with whipped cream and decorate with coffee beans should you have them.
