We often enjoy this wonderful coffee drink on cold nights in front of the fire. Leave off the whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles and add a scoop of quality vanilla ice cream. You'll think you died and went to Heaven! Thanks Renee

I was very disappointed with this recipe. I expected a lot more after reading the reviews...I tried it both ways, with the cream as written, and with vanilla ice cream as suggested, and both were dismal failures.

This drink is lovely. Very nice after a long day. I'd make this again.

This is one of my favorite "dessert" drinks and can be quite special for company prepared tableside. First, run a little lemon around the rim of a brandy snifter that will take the heat. Dip the rim in sugar; pour in the brandy and liqueurs; set aflame so that the sugar is melted around the top of the glass; pour in coffee and top with whipped cream.

Very good and so relaxing!! I do have to add my usual amount of sweetener because I don't like black coffee. This is just very nice!

Though I'm not a big brandy lover, this was wonderful, even with 1/2 & 1/2 instead of whipped cream! Thanks, Renee!

One of my favorites, but it isn't original. This is a classic called a "Keoke coffee", which I've ordered in bars/restaurants many times. It's a bit of an uncommon recipe, so many bartenders don't know it. Still, I've always liked it better than the more common coffee/liqueur drinks you usually see. Fond memories of sipping one of these on a snowy weekend afternoon in Alaska... Mmmmm...
