You just need Irish whiskey, cream, simple syrup, and your favorite cold brew coffee. Cold brew is coffee that’s been slowly brewed without any heat over a period of hours. I used Stumptown‘s version (available at any Whole Foods) for its rich and subtly sweet flavor — excellent for a coffee cocktail. If you don’t have cold brew on hand, you can use regular drip coffee, but be sure to brew strong and let it cool completely.
- 6 parts cold brew coffee
- 2 parts Irish whiskey
- 1.5 parts simple syrup
- 1.5 parts cream
- In a cocktail shaker, add coffee, whiskey, and simple syrup. Fill with ice and shake vigorously for 5 seconds (enough to cool, but not dilute the mixture).
- Strain into chilled collins glasses filled with ice.
- Carefully top with heavy cream.
- Add a cute straw and enjoy!
