Irish Coffee, Dead Rabbit
This syrup swaps in golden-hued demerara or turbinado sugar as opposed to processed/bleached white sugar. This gives a deeper, almost caramel-like flavor with a funky molasses nose popular in tropical drinks. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
In gaelic, uisce betha, or 'water of life' was used to describe such drinks in the Middle Ages. This malted grain whiskey must be produced on the island of Ireland.
A brewed drink prepared from the grinds of roasted coffee plant seeds. Coffee is a fruit!
The butterfat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenization, contains more than 35% milk fat. Also called single/double cream and whipping cream, although these may also add thickening agents making them less useful for mixing in cocktails. This is used as a foaming agent and for fat-washing in cocktails.
The seed from an evergreen tree, used as a grated garnish in many cocktails. A must for egg-nog and egg-nog like drinks. In sufficent amounts it gives a numbing sensation.
Add all the ingredients, except the cream, to an Irish glass. Whip the cream and add about an inch on top. Garnish with grated nutmeg. #hot #straight
