Now THIS is my kind of coffee!
While perusing Sother Teague’s “I’m Just Here for the Drinks” I stumbled upon this nod to a cappuccino and knew immediately that I had to have it in my life! As Sother says in his book, “there’s something about mixing coffee with alcohol that just seems right.” I agree.
This is one of those dangerously delicious drinks that makes you want to lick the glass and then ask for another. It’s like an Irish Coffee in that way. Only this one is cold. And has Rye. And life is simply better with a bit of Rye.
I also really like the technique of shaking bitters into cream to add a layer of flavor to a drink. Not something I’ve done much before, but something I’ll definitely be looking for opportunities to do more often. And not just for boozy drinks! This is a trick we can all do – drinkers or not – to spice up an everyday coffee or tea, or even to add some extra flavor to whipped cream for your pie.
