  • Author: Nikki Cervone
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 drinks 1x


Adding some booze to hot coffee creates a fun beverage. Try Pharisäer Kaffee, a North Frisian drink with strong coffee, rum, and whipped cream.


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups strong hot coffee
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 4 cubes turbinado sugar


  1. Whip the cream by hand with a whisk in a large mixing bowl or with the whisk attachment on your stand mixer until soft, fluffy peaks form, about 2 minutes. Cover and place in the refrigerator to keep cool.
  2. Prepare two cups of strong hot coffee.
  3. Gently heat the rum in a small saucepan over low heat just until it starts simmering, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Place two sugar cubes in each mug. While they’re still hot, immediately pour 1 cup coffee and 1/8 cup rum into each mug. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  5. Top each drink with whipped cream and serve immediately.
