Rüdesheimer Kaffee Recipe
The Rüdesheimer Kaffee consists of sugar cubes, Asbach Uralt, a brandy, coffee, and whipped cream with sprinkled chocolate. The name of Asbach for the brandy goes back to the founder of the company established in Rüdesheim, Hugo Asbach.
- 3 sugar cubes
- 4-6 ml of Asbach Uralt (if you cannot find Asbach, any other brandy works too). The amount of brandy depends on how strong you would like to have it.
- 1 cup of coffee
- 2 tsp. of whipped cream
- some grated chocolate
Place the sugar cubes in a tall coffee cup. Warm the brandy either in the microwave or in a bain-marie and pour it over the sugar cubes. Use a long match to light the sugar cubes and brandy mix, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Pour the hot coffee over the sugared Asbach. Add the whipped cream and shave or grind the chocolate over the top.
The town of Rüdesheim is on the river Rhein and is also known for its famous street Drosselgasse with many restaurants and outdoor cafes offering regional wine.
