Irish Coffee Is A 2-Ingredient Cocktail That Deserves A Proper Whiskey
When making Irish coffee, using strong and bold coffee is important, but even more crucial is choosing a whiskey that can hold up to heating and the other flavors.
However, simultaneously, it can't have an overly dominant character, or else the drink becomes less seamless. As per the cocktail's name, a booze of Irish origin is essential.
The regulations around making Irish whiskey result in a style with a brighter, fruitier taste, all finished with a balanced barrel note that meshes nicely with creamy coffee.
Avoid using a complex Irish whiskey that's meant for sipping and instead opt for blended Irish whiskeys and smooth, slightly sweet varieties like Powers Irish Whiskey.
