Have you got a soft spot for the sophisticated and timeless Old Fashioned? Fancy. But have you ever tried a Cold Fashioned recipe? After all, when you’ve got something that’s already perfect, the only way to make it even better is to… add coffee. Simple.
Even better? Add Irish Whiskey infused coffee to double up on its flavor, of course.
This recipe makes one cocktail, so it’s a great starting point before you’re actually ready to show off your barman skills in front of your friends.
First things first, start by using around 1 oz of the strong cold-brewed coffee concentrate that you’ve prepared yesterday and left in your fridge overnight.
‘Wait, which coffee concentrate?!’
For a barman-worthy result, you might need to travel back in time or brew it now so that you can have the cocktail tomorrow or over the next few days. After all, it’s called cold fashioned for a reason!
Nah? Last-minute decision and you want your cold fashioned ASAP? Ok, just for this time you can brew it with your usual coffee maker and leave it in the fridge to cool down. Next time, you should definitely try the other method though: it tastes so much better!
Pour 2 oz of your Egan’s Irish Whiskey in a traditional tumbler glass, add a cube of demerara sugar, and mix it properly until it dissolves (check the bottom!).
Then you can add you cold-brewed coffee concentrate.
Our trick? We like to add a maraschino cherry, which you can easily smash with the back of your spoon. Once you’ve done that, add a couple of dashes of Angostura bitter and a few ice cubes.
Now the unashamedly lavish part. Slice a wedge of orange peel and grab your match. After lighting it up and letting the sulfur burn off for a couple of seconds, heat up the peel and balance it on the rim of the glass. Why?
By burning it you allow its oils to come out, adding the citrusy aroma of oranges and a delicate hint of smoke to your cold fashioned experience.
Congratulations: you’ve just taken your old fashioned knowledge to the next level. We hope you’ve enjoyed this cold fashioned recipe, but don’t forget that you can make the most of our Irish Whiskey infused coffee on its own, too.
Don’t worry: it’s absolutely ok to have it as your first drink of the morning. Thanks to our proprietary process, we’ve kept all the sweet nuances and characteristic flavor of Egan’s Irish Whisky but removed the alcohol side of things.
You can get our Irish Whiskey infused coffee delivered straight to your door either as beans or grounds, or even as a subscription model that matches your coffee needs.
