A delectable mix of caffeine, cocktail, and dessert.
from: Bon Appetit
makes: 1 drink
2 ounces strong, cold-brew coffee*
2 ounces stout (I used Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, but you could use Guinness or whatever stout you prefer)
1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce heavy cream
cinnamon for garnish (this really made the drink, in my opinion)
Mix the coffee, stout, whiskey, and simple syrup in a highball glass. Add ice to fill. Gently pour in the heavy cream so it gradually sinks into the coffee; sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir if desired.
*Cold brew coffee is coarse-ground coffee that is brewed in cold or room temperature water for an extended period of time (usually 12-15 hours). The coffee grounds are then filtered out (using a sieve, then coffee filter) and then it is ready. It is a concentrate, so you then dilute the concentrate with an equal amount of water or milk. It can be used for iced coffee, hot coffee, blended-with-ice coffee drinks, or cocktails. Cold brew coffee has less acidity, so I think it tastes smoother and sweeter. It is amazing… This is the recipe I use for cold brew.
