Skip the Line: Easy Irish Coffee

March 16, 2019

 

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!

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces of Strong Brewed Grounds & Hounds Alpha Blend
  • 1 ½ ounces of Irish Whiskey (Tullamore DEW is our personal choice)
  • ½ tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1 ounce of heavy cream (optional)
  • 2 ounces of whipped cream
  • Nutmeg for garnish (optional)

 Directions

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!

As much as we love Independence Day, the July 4th holiday also results in the highest shelter intake wave of the year. The barrage of fireworks and outdoor activities leads to a high number of runaway dogs. As a result, on July 5th shelters can become overwhelmed with lost lost pups.
