2 Superb St Patrick’s Day Cocktails.
Six generations in the making, P. & H. Egan Ltd was founded in 1852 in Tullamore, County Offaly, the beating heart of 19th Century Ireland. Egan’s Irish Whiskey was resurrected in 2013, by members of the Egan family who are still involved in business today. Egan’s Fortitude, the single malt used in the recipe below, was matured exclusively in Pedro Ximénez casks and as such is rich in sherried flavours and aromas, perfect for an Irish coffee.
St Patrick’s Day Cocktails – Egan’s Irish Whiskey | Irish Coffee
- 40ml – Egan’s Fortitude whiskey
- 120ml – Freshly brewed coffee
- 1 Tsp – Demerara Sugar
- Fresh Cream
- Grated Chocolate Orange
Pour some boiling water into your glass. Brew 120ml of fresh coffee. Lightly whip your cream, just enough to thicken it. Discard the hot water in the glass. Add the coffee and Egan’s Fortitude and the sugar before stirring until completely combined. Pour the cream onto the back of a spoon so it doesn’t sink to the bottom. The sprinkle over the grate Chocolate Orange.
