Whatever your traditions may be, we think the most important part of St. Patrick's Day is starting the morning with the perfect blend of bold coffee and a splash of strong whiskey. To help you get the party going, we have put together our favorite recipe of the iconic Irish coffee!
1). Brew a strong cup of Grounds & Hounds Alpha Blend. We recommend using the French Press method for a more robust and rich coffee base. Also, the dark roast of Alpha Blend will pair perfectly with the savory Irish Coffee ingredients.
2). Grab a mug that speaks to the occasion and add one ounce of your favorite Irish Whiskey
3). Then, to add a touch of sweetness to the drink, add in ½ tablespoon of maple syrup and one ounce of heavy cream
4). Next, fill your mug with the fresh brewed Alpha Blend coffee, stopping about 1 inch short of the cup's brim.
5). Finally, top off your Irish coffee with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle nutmeg to garnish.
We hope you all have a lucky St. Patrick’s Day, one full of surprises, great food, hardy laughs and of course, a morning coffee cocktail to match. If you’re feeling particularly festive all year round, our “Luck of the Dog” tee might be just what you’re looking for. Cheers!
