Variation: If you want a bit of theatre, before pouring the drink into the glass add 10 ml/2 tsp of the high proof rum/brandy to the glass and light on fire, then carefully rotate the glass to caramelize the sugar rim whilst simultaneously sprinkling over the spice mix. To put out the fire, pour over the hot coffee cocktail.
