Top o’ the mornin’ and a very happy St Patrick’s day to one and all from Gef the Irish (for one day only) Mongoose!
To help kick start your Paddy’s day celebrations, we’re sharing our super duper not so top secret recipe for the best damn Irish coffee in the entire world*
*A claim verified by our two Irish mates that tried them yesterday, got a little bit drunk and told us so…
What makes our Irish coffee in particular so special you may ask? Well friend, that’s down to the top quality Manx coffee and cream we went and made it with.
Recipe: Manx-Irish Coffee
50ml Jameson Irish Whiskey
120ml fresh Noa Roasthouse coffee
50ml IOM Creamery double cream, lightly whipped
2 x teaspoons dark soft brown sugar
- Brew coffee
- Pour whiskey, sugar and coffee into glass
- Stir ’til the sugar is dissolved
- Lightly whip cream
- Pour cream over the back of a teaspoon to ‘float’ cream atop the whiskey / coffee mix
- Garnish with a mint leaf
- Repeat ’til you’re the desired level of faux-Irish
