Five Step Irish Coffee Ingredients
This recipe will come together very quickly once your coffee is brewed, so we recommend having all ingredients handy, as well as your favorite mug, as you begin brewing.
Brew 8 oz. of your favorite Grounds & Hounds blend using the brewing method of your choice. After testing a few brewing options, we recommend using a French Press (if you have one handy) to brew a full-bodied Medium or Dark Roast blend, such as Alpha or Paper & Slippers, to help balance the additional ingredients.
After the coffee is brewed, pour into your favorite mug and leave room for the whiskey, sugar, and whipped cream.
While the coffee is piping hot, stir in 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar until dissolved. After the sugar dissolves, add 1 1/2 oz. of your favorite Irish Whiskey and continue stirring.
Now it’s time to top off your Irish coffee with 2 tablespoons of cold, heavy whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon. We have found that the key to maintaining the beautiful puff of whipped cream atop the surface of your coffee is to keep the cream refrigerated until the last possible moment (the colder the better)
Now your Irish Coffee is ready! So, recite your favorite toast, give your pup a belly rub, and enjoy!
The dog days of summer call for a refreshing cold brew enjoyed in the sun with your four-legged best friend! But, before you shell out money for pre-made cold brew...
