Experience the dramatic presentation and flavor of a Flaming Coffee at Hotel Manisses.

Block Island offers many unique experiences for both first-time visitors and those returning year after year. After a long day spent exploring the island and having fun, head over to the Hotel Manisses Lobby Bar for a festive way to end the day. The Flaming Coffee has been a hotel Manisses tradition for years. One of our bartenders will put on a show as he or she prepares the Flaming Coffee. The experience of a flaming "waterfall" is quite a sight to see, and the resulting concoction is a delicious drink.

Flaming Coffees are typical to Spain, but you don't have to cross the Atlantic to experience this flaming beverage. Like the Hotel Manisses, this drink has a rich history. During the Spanish occupation of Cuba, the troops combined coffee with rum and lit it on fire to give them courage. Thankfully, guests of the Hotel Manisses Lobby Bar get to drink this blazing treat in a beautiful, relaxed setting, and need only muster enough courage to experience the bold flavor.

The Flaming Coffee isn't for the faint of heart with it's fiery presentation and rich flavor. All of the Flaming Coffees at Hotel Manisses are rum-based drinks, with the choice liquor being Bacardi 151. There are eight flavor combinations to choose from, and all are topped with cinnamon and whipped cream. You're sure to find one that tickles your fancy from one of these selections:

  • Chocolate Cake
  • Coffee & Cream
  • Hazelnut Cream
  • Sambvca
  • The Raspberry Coffee
  • Cointreau
  • After Dinner Taste
  • Irish Coffee

This dazzling concoction is available to both hotel guests, and those stopping in for a unique treat in a beautiful setting. If you're looking for a bit of flamboyance and a delicious treat, you're sure to find it in the Flaming Coffees at Hotel Manisses.
