Irish Coffee

Description:

Irish whiskey and coffee, the overlooked piece of this cocktail is usually a touch of sugar and the frothed top

Ingredients:

Jameson Irish Whiskey
9 oz. Coffee
1 oz. DaVinci Gourmet Vanilla Syrup
1 Cup Heavy whipping cream

Yield:

12oz

Instructions:

To make a proper Irish Coffee the cream needs to float on top of the hot coffee. There is a sensation of sweet cold fatty cream, on top of alcohol and bitter coffee. The balance is brilliant. The cream should flow with the coffee below, but have its own structure.

Take a small container of heavy whipping cream, pour out about half (set aside). Add in 10% or just 1oz of DaVinci Gourmet Vanilla. Close spout of heavy whipping cream and shake for about 1 minute. You will start to hear the sound soften as you are incorporating air into the liquid and agitating the proteins in the milk. Is should look like a milkshake. It needs to float on the hot coffee. So simply pour a little cream from a very close distance to your coffee. If it floats, then add a small layer on top. Garnish with cinnamon or coffee grounds for the best aroma and visuals
