Do you love Irish coffee?? Why not whip up this chilled twist on the classic drink, which gets a surprising bright jolt from a nice squeeze of citrus?
Irish coffee is a well-known and delicious concoction, but what about mixing Irish Breakfast tea and booze? If you love your black teas, brew some up strong and mix with Irish whiskey, fresh lemon juice and a bit of raspberry jam for a surprising fruity addition. It’s so good!
Your sweet and maybe even slightly smoky Irish whiskey gets a tart, bitter and fruity blast from strawberry syrup and, unexpectedly, aged balsamic vinegar, which pairs delightfully well with Lillet Rose, sherry and Orinoco bitters for a unique, sophisticated drinking experience.
Smoky mezcal and sweet Irish whiskey play well together in this cocktail that features herbal Benedictine and Peychaud’s bitters, although you can swap in a nice peaty scotch for the mezcal and whiskey if you’d prefer.
