Cafe Maya


Found in various restaurants in Mexico, the making of this after-dinner drink is dramatic. With flaming liquor, you can impress your friends and family with this delicious mix of coffee, ice cream, brandy, and anise-flavored xtabentum liqueur.



  • slice of orange
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 3/4 ounce Xtabentun Mayan Liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce brandy
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream




  1. Moisten the rim of the glass with a slice of orange. Roll the rim of the glass in sugar.
  2. Warm a goblet and two sauce boats gently with a cooking torch.
  3. Pour the coffee in the cup leaving two inches for the liqueurs.
  4. Pour the xtabentun and the brandy into one of the sauce boats and light the spirits using the torch. Pour the flaming spirits from one sauce boat into the other, then into the goblet.
  5. Carefully spoon the ice cream into the coffee so that it floats and begins to melt. Do not stir.
