Talk about a fiery pick-me-up!
La Hacienda, the signature Mexican restaurant at the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess resort in Scottsdale, serves two after-dinner coffee cocktails with an explosive showcase.
Known as "Café de Fuego" on the menu, the cocktail glass is ignited with a bit of Bacardi 151 and the rim is lined with a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
The flame stays in the glass for a brief time until some more cinnamon-sugar is dropped on top which gives the flame effect.
La Hacienda has two versions of the cocktail:
- The "tradicional" is made with Blanco Tequila and 1921 Crema Tequila. The cost is $19.
- The "especial" is made with Bailey's Irish Cream and Frangelico. The cost is $20.
As for the coffee, you have a choice of regular or decaf.
The restaurant recently underwent a renovation of its bar, patio and dining room. Last week, ABC15 was invited to a media preview to see the updated look, which is where this cocktail was put on display.
