Café Loompa

Authormshinty

Every year my wife makes a liqueur during Lent, an old Breton recipe which combines coffee and orange in light rum. I have used that as inspiration for this recipe, adding cognac and orgeat for another layer of French flavours. Why Café Loompa? This seems the right drink for magical folk - it won't turn your skin orange and your hair green, but it will make your shift in the chocolate factory fly by!
