In honor of Saint Patrick’s day, I created this riff on a traditional Irish coffee recipe. It’s well balanced with Irish whiskey, espresso, heavy cream and simple syrup, where one can savor all the ingredients and will go well at all St. Patrick’s celebrations.
Johnny’s Irish Coffee
2 oz. espresso (preferably Dulsao do Brazil from Nespresso)
1 1/2 oz. Tullamore D.E.W Irish Whiskey
3/4 oz. Dark Creme de Cacoa
1 oz. Heavy cream
1/4 oz. Simple syrup
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass.
