IRISH COFFEE

  • Coffee
  • Lightly Whipped Unsweetened Cream
Combine Whiskey, coffee and syrup in an Irish coffee glass. Ladle one inch of cream on top. Variation: Nawlins Irish Coffee - Prepare with Southern Comfort and Sazerac Rye Whiskey

SAZERAC
Fill two rocks glasses with ice. Wait until glasses are chilled. Empty one chilled glass and put a teaspoon of sugar and two dashes of Peychaud's bitters in the bottom, with a tiny splash of water (or use a dash of simple syrup). Crush the saturated sugar cube using a muddler or the back of a spoon. Add two shots of Sazerac Rye Whiskey and stir.

Empty ice from the second glass into the glass containing rye, sugar, and bitters, allowing it to chill. Add dash of Herbsaint to the second glass, and roll glass horizontally to coat the inside of the glass with the Herbsaint. For added drama, twirl it into the air, allowing the centrifugal force to spin the Herbsaint around the insides of the glass, calling out "Sazerac!". Discard the excess. Pour contents of the first glass into the second glass and garnish with a lemon peel, making sure to first extract the lemon essence from the peel. Enjoy.
