al roker on nbc is such a riot ... today they were showcasing the star buck's coffee cup design for the holidays ... they were asking whether or not it was too early to roll out the holiday decor ... one male co-host said that christmas decor was acceptable beginning the first day following halloween ... the female hosts were saying there wasn't enough cream and sugar for their display/samples ... al roker was saying that a real friend would have added a shot of rum to the coffee display/samples ... hahahha.
According to Wikipedia:
A Carajillo is a Spanish drink combining coffee with brandy or rum.
There are many different ways of making a carajillo, ranging from black coffee with the spirit simply poured in, to heating the spirit with lemon, sugar and cinnamon and adding the coffee last.
A similar Italian drink is known as caffè corretto.
The American version of a Spanish Coffee uses a heated sugar rimmed Spanish coffee mug 3/4oz rum and 1/2oz triple sec. The drink is then flamed to carmalize the sugar. 2oz coffee liquour is then added which puts out the flame, and then it is topped off with 3-4oz of coffee, and whipped cream.
mmm ... i think al was right.
