Greetings from Argyll. I used to drink a brandy coffee pronounced carajios, excuse the spelling. Can anybody tell me what the correct spelling of that word is. I drank them in the trisquel bar in Gijon in 1987. Anybody shared that experience? Slainte Gregor

Desde Asturias. El "CARAJILLO" es una bebida general de toda España, pero se bebe mas en el norte del pais, por el clima mas frío. Se hace de la siguiente manera: Se vierte un poco de brandy en un recipiente que se pueda calertar, se calienta hasta que, con una cerilla o un mechero se le prende fuego, junto con el azucar que se quiera, haste que se apague solo o según quiera cada uno que quede mas alcohol o menos. Se vierte un cafe en el recipiente y se toma con cuidado de no quemarse. Hay mas variedades con diferentes nombres, con wiskey, con ron o con nata.
Saludos.

From Asturias. CARAJILLO is a beverage common all over Spain, but it is more consumed in the North of the country, where the weather is colder. This is the recipe: pour a bit of brandy in a saucepan. Heat and light with a match or a lighter. Add sugar (at taste), and wait 'til it burns out (you can burn it out yourself if you want less alcohol evaporated). Add the coffee. Drink carefully not to get burnt. There more varieties with different names, with whiskey, rhum or cream.

Best regards.

Hi Gregor,

I've made a little translation for Indalecio's reply. Hope it helps.

Best regards,

Ana

I would add that it is very important to stand away from the pan while flaming the hot brandy. I use brandy in cooking quite often, and the flames can easily jump up 12 to 25 cm. If you have your face over the pan, cejas quemadas or worse.
