Step 1: Rim Your Irish Coffee Mug With Cinnamon Sugar
First place your Irish coffee mug into the cinnamon sugar mixture. With your hand firmly placed on the bottom of the glass turn your glass until you have a cinnamon sugar rim.
Step 2: Pour Your 151 Rum and Ignite the Rum
1 1/2 oz - 2oz of 151 rum into your Irish coffee mug. With the glass tilted at a 45 degree angle (to prevent burning yourself) ignite the rum with a lighter or long match.
Step 3: Caramelize the Sugar
While still holding the glass at a 45 degree angle move the glass in a circular motion to caramelize the sugar on the entire rim of the glass.
Step 4: Put Out the Fire
After caramelizing the cinnamon sugar rim, pour 2oz of Kahlua into your Irish coffee mug to put out the flame.
Step 5: Add Coffee to Your Spanish Coffee
Next pour hot coffee into your Irish coffee mug, leave 1/4 - 1/2 in at the top of the glass for whipped cream.
Step 6: Add Whipped Cream and Garnish With Fresh Nutmeg
Lastly add your whipped cream to the top of your Spanish coffee. Garnish the drink with some fresh nutmeg and serve immediately. Enjoy!
