Although the name may suggest otherwise, this cocktail does not contain or let alone even taste like coffee; instead it is made with a blend of Cognac, port, egg and sugar, and serves as a delicious post-dinner coffee substitute. 


  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 ounce Cognac
  • 2 ounces ruby or late-bottled vintage port
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • freshly grated nutmeg to garnish


  1. Place the egg, Cognac, port and sugar into a cocktail shaker and then fill with ice.
  2. Shake the mixture vigorously for at least 50 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with the freshly grated nutmeg and serve immediately.
