IRISH COFFEES are lovely aren't they?
Perfect with a meal, a great way to see a night off, and heck - we won't tell anyone - they're a bleedin' fantastic way to kick your day off too.
A blend of aromatic coffee and smooth cream with a whiskey kick. What's not to love?
But here at the Irish Post we like to go above and beyond. We like to provide our fans with as much Irishness as we possibly can.
The question is, how do you make an Irish coffee more Irish?
Simple. Like so many questions in Ireland, the answer is Guinness.
By adding just a smidge of the Black Stuff, as well as a dash of cinnamon, a spoonful of sugar syrup, and a handful of ice cubes, we think we've found an ice-coffee recipe you'll be googling over and over again.
To make one, here's everything you need to know courtesy of BonAppetit:
What you will need:
2 oz. strong cold-brew coffee
2 oz. stout (Guinness)
1½ oz. Irish whiskey
¾ oz. simple syrup
1/2 ounce heavy cream
Freshly grated cinnamon stick (for serving)
How to make it:
- Add 4 or 5 large ice cubes to a highball glass
- Lightly whisk the cream in a separate bowl, only for about 10-20 seconds so that it thickens slightly
- Mix the coffee, Guinness and Irish whiskey into the highball
- Gently pour in the cream so it gradually sinks into the coffee
- Add the simple syrup and stir
- Sprinkle the cinnamon on top
