Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Change up the classic hot Irish coffee with this refreshing iced version. Coffee gets amped with some espresso and whiskey. Ice it up and serve with whipped cream. Much better than green beer. Sláinte!
Irish Iced Coffee
2 ounces Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon ground espresso
2 teaspoons demerara sugar
3 ounces cold brew coffee (recipe here—but I just used some chilled leftover coffee)
Whipped cream and some demerara sugar (for serving)
1. Combine whiskey and espresso in a small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes then strain whiskey through a coffee filter into a cocktail shaker.
2. Meanwhile, stir sugar and 2 teaspoons of hot water in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved.
3. Add demerara syrup and cold brew to cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake for 30 seconds.
4. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice and top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with demerara sugar if you like.
