Traditional method calls for brandy mixture to be ignited with flame for 5 to 10 seconds then immediately pouring hot coffee over mixture. Stir until flames subside and then divide between two mugs. I’ve opted for less zealous method in the directions. Please use extreme caution when using open flame.
