Italian Sugar Cubes of Fire – Zuccherini

Leave a comment

We were offered these sweet treats as a digestive after our meal on the slopes at Waikiki. Colourful blueberry & cinnamon, lemon & mint and raspberry sugar cubes were brought out on a plate and then flambéed, before we blew them out (this took some puff) and ate them whilst still hot. The sugar cubes were boozy … very boozy… they were however, out done by the incredible cheek numbing sensation that was brought on by the blueberries … the blueberries were pure alcohol.

Zuccherini

I have done a bit of research into the recipe. The cubes are made by placing dry sugar cubes into a jar with various herbs and spices and are topped with 95% ethyl alcohol. After leaving the jar for several weeks in a cool dark room, they are ready to blow your mind.

Not sure I would generally recommend consuming 95% ethyl alcohol, it did make it easier to dance in my ski boots though!
