Carajillo: An espresso with brandy (or your favorite schnaps such as rum or a mezcal. )
In Catalonia you often get anis instead of brandy. It works best with the sweet anis IMHO. But then don't add any sugar because it will be unbearably sweet. In some restaurants and bars it is customary to add one coffee bean and a very small piece of lemon, lime or bitter orange. But it seems that every region of Spain has its own theory on what the correct recipe is.

Caffè corretto: The same as the above, but the booze is served as a side. The traditional Italian version is with grappa or aquavit .
Carajillo you do as well sometimes. Some waiters take pride in preparing it in front of your eyes on the table. I always thought what defines the proper Caffé corretto is that it is made with Italian style espresso. Spanish coffee is typically torrefacto (roast with sugar) which produces the slightly caramel taste. I don't know how the Italians roast but they definitely produce a very distinctive taste.

I like whiskey in tea. Brandy or vodka in hot chocolate.
I love hot chocolate with a shot of amaretto. Worth trying too.

Re: warm alcoholic drinks

A friend of mine says the Swiss army recipe for Café Träsch is to drop a coin into the glass. You pour in black coffee until you can't see the coin any more, and then pour in schnapps until you can see it again.

I have yet to try that myself.

had to google it...
"Although Jägertee is easily made at home, ready-made mixtures containing the sugar and spices are sold in shops. The Austrian "Strohrum", popular spiced rum, is often used for making it, and the brand also produces its own ready-made variety. We think making Jägertee from scratch (and sampling it along the way) is half the fun, so follow the recipe below.
How to make it:
Step 1:
Heat the tea, wine, rum, brandy, orange juice, spices, and lemons in a pot. Let it gently simmer for around 5 minutes.
Step 2:
Remove from the heat and add a little sugar to taste."

sounds like a version of gluhwein with tea. will give it a try - thanks

I wouldn’t heat it to a simmer, heat it to no higher than about 65-70 degrees (still hot) to avoid loosing the good stuff. Use a thermometer, they are cheap at the migros.

Re: warm alcoholic drinks

A good Irish coffee, served with cream of course, would be my hot alcoholic drink of choice. But only as an occasional treat and/or a way to use up cheap whisk(e)y. Too calorific as a regular tipple.

Served vs consumed As it should be added when the coffee has already cooled down a bit.
Not in Ticino nor Italy.

And I normally take it with sambuca rather than grappa.

Re: warm alcoholic drinks

I had cola de mono recently.

It's like chocolate milk for grown-ups, because it has some coffee and aguardiente/grappa in it.

It's a calorie bomb though.

But I guess most warm alcholic drinks are, except for pure tea or coffee with just a shot of grappa or sambuca or whatever pure distilled alcohol.

lots of ideas- thanks ace and landers...another thing, a few of these recipes ask for rum, whiskey, bourbon, advice on the best/ favourite brands for these drinks?

Stroh for rum is somewhat traditional.
Strongbow's not so bad, I mean, there are no rules. Mix whatever you have. Maybe strongbow with tequila will take the edge off. Bailey's with your cornflakes etc.

It should be good enough that you wont go blind from it but please dont put anything expensive in your coffee... whatever major brand your local denner has on offer. Think Johnnie Walker Red Lable, Captain Morgan "spiced gold"...


But since this is the EF for Switzerland: Kaffi Luz

Oooh, that reminds me of a (cold) concoction that's always been very popular, although I haven't made it in ages. Baileys and amaretto mixed, on ice. With added vodka for those who want a bit more kick to it.

Oh don't... i can't drink Baileys any more. And the dairy free version is one of the nastiest things i have ever smelled.

Yeah, something like that, but with more of a kick than shop-bought Gluehwein.

Traditionally served (at least by our Swedish friends) over the xmas period with cracker-type biscuits spread with Gorgonzola. Delicious.

Ah, forget about it. The best natural remedy against cold is a good home made brandy/schnapps brought to boil with some pepper and (a bit of) sugar...

Other than that - yes, of course mulled wine. Always. Properly done - don't be stingy with cinnamon. Add almonds too.

Slammer´s granny´s recipe: Two fingers of rum. Fore and pinky, nice and hot, lemon for the vitamins and a spoon of honey.
The cold doesn´t go away but you are so ransacked that you don´t mind.

Exactly - yes, that is what Glögg is.
From Sweden - but now it can also be had in Germany.
