Klingon Raktajino




Introduction: Klingon Raktajino

About: Not much to say about me except I like to make things. My dream build would have to be a working tricorder but custumized for ghost hunting and other paranormal investigations, which is another hobby of mine.

Being a chef means I get to experiment making new dishes and drinks. Recently a friend threw a "Star Trek" Party and wanted me to make some of the food from "The Star Trek Cookbook", and to also create Star Trek Drinks from the various spin offs. Since I enjoy creating I decided to come up with my own recipes instead of using those that have been published, I wanted my drinks to be as alien as possible.
So here is the first drink Klingon Raktajino. I will try to add a new drink each month time and interest permitting.

Step 1: Ingrediants

It would be kind of hard to make Raktagino with out the ingredients"
1. Espresso Coffee
2. Cinnamon to taste
3 .Four whole cloves
4. Four Allspice pods
5. Dash of Nutmeg
6. Sugar to taste
7. Half packet Powdered Milk

Step 2: Combine

Combine all the ingredients except sugar and powdered milk into a coffee filter.

Step 3: Brew

Brew Raktajino in a Hew-man coffeepot, If you want really strong Raktagino you can double brew it.
Double brewing should only be attempted by the Strongest and Bravest of Warriors!!

Step 4: Add Sugar and Powdered Milk

Add sugar to taste and 1/2 packet powdered milk to a pitcher while raktajino is brewing

Step 5: Mix and Stir

Pour the finished Raktagino into pitcher,then stir to mix coffee,sugar and powdered milk.

Step 6: Pour and Enjoy

Pour your self a cup and enjoy,though it is best drunk while telling stories of past battles with your warrior brothers!

Step 7: NOTES:

If you want to drink your Raktagino in true Deep Space Nine fashon you can order the cups they used from here http://highwave.bigcartel.com/product/hotjo for $12.50 It would make a great addition to any of you who collect Star Trek Props!

What exactly is a "Half packet of powdered Milk?" I have a gallon bag of powdered milk that makes something like 12 gallons. I use it for cooking recipes that call for milk because I wind up drinking regular milk.

It is an odd amount, seeing as how much variance there can be in packet size. It looks like the pictured packet of milk powder would make a quart of prepared milk, possibly less. So, half of a quart packet would be the amount needed to prepare 2 cups of milk, meaning roughly 2/3 cup of the dry mix. That seems like a lot, and doesn't seem to jive with the amount that was added to the pitcher. So, I'd just use 1/4 to 1/3 cup, roughly, or the amount that will give you the whitening that appears similar to the picture of the finished drink, you might need to adjust it for your preference. Personally, I'd rather use fresh dairy or non-dairy creamer, and I encourage everyone to experiment rather than be enslaved to exact amounts (especially as some of the ingredients don't even give amounts, and there isn't any serving size listed).

Never tried the Allspice, does it make that big of a difference? Also, have you tried steamed milk?

Not bad and easy to make. However, since Worf was a fan of prune juice, the warrior drink; I tried a recipe of: strong coffee with a pinch of five spice powder and hot prune juice. To make it alcoholic, I added armagnac, a popular french liquor used with prunes that is a great treat with coffee. No need for cream or sugar. Would likely make a nice syrup when reduced and severed over vanilla ice cream. Raktajino a la mode.

I'm very happy that you are enjoying the Raktajino! I am thinking that since I am Chef that I might start a web page with recipes for other sci-fi food Some thing like the star trek cook book but for all sci-fi movies and t.v. shows. what do you think?

I found this for my wife some weeks ago and she's been making it for us since then (had to search the conversion of allspice PODS to POWERED, but it we worked it out), This is AMAZING.
