IRISH WHISKEY, MEET COFFEE.
It’s the winter of 1943. Cold, weary travelers stumble into a restaurant in Ireland after storms delay their flight. While they settle in for a long and arduous night, Chef Joe Sheridan eyes the coffee maker and has an idea.
Spike coffee with whiskey and top it with cream - that's Joe's historic recipe that bartenders have known for over 70 years. But knowing the recipe and perfecting it were two very different concepts.
Lucky for you, perfection doesn’t require another 70 years of experience - or a degree in mixology.
The only essential is Bushmills Original Whiskey, with a unique lightness and distinctive malted component to balance the cocktail. Share your Irish Coffee creation with us on social and show us how easy it really is.
