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!
Every year on August 1st we celebrate Dogust! Dogust is a dedicated day where we celebrate all Rescue dog's birthdays. Many rescue owners don't know the exact birthday of their pups, and Dogust is a special day to send love to all rescues (those who are awaiting adoption and those who have found their forever homes). We stopped by Wags n Walks for the festivities, and there's nothing better than seeing the joy on the dog's faces as we helped them to celebrate!
