Dublin Iced Coffee

dublin iced coffeeSome flavor combinations are natural matches, and Erick Castro, owner of San Diego’s Polite Provisions and Boilermaker in New York City, has a fondness for pairing Irish whiskey and coffee, which he combines in his Dublin Iced Coffee. “This drink is essentially a twist on the Irish Coffee, which is known and loved around the world,” says Castro, who retooled the drink using cold-brew coffee and stout beer for extra depth and flavor. “The drink works best with a coffee stout such as AleSmith Speedway, but Guinness works plenty well as a substitute.”

1½ oz. Irish whiskey
¾ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
2 oz. stout beer
2 oz. cold-brew coffee
½ oz. heavy cream
Tools: barspoon
Glass: footed pilsner
Garnish: freshly grated cinnamon

Fill a glass with ice and add all ingredients except the cream. Stir to combine. Slowly pour the cream on top of the drink and garnish.
