Hot Lumumba with brandy

A Lumumba is a long drink named after Congolese politician Patrice Lumumba.

The drink consists of cocoa, sometimes accompanied by cream, and a shot of rum. Some alternatives replace the rum with amaretto or brandy.

Depending on whether the hot or cold cocoa is used, the result is a Hot Lumumba or a Cold Lumumba.

Cultural Significance[edit]

In his book The File: A Personal History, Timothy Garton Ash mentioned Lumumba when talking about his trip to Albania in the summer of 1978.[1]
