Rabbit Hole Distillery
A perfect early morning cocktail for cold autumn months, or winter break. Honestly, any weekend is a perfect time to enjoy this classic cocktail that can trace it's origins back to the early 1950's in Ireland. It is a perfect balance of rich and warm espresso with high rye whiskey and a sweet cream topping.
2.5 ounces Boxergrail High Rye whiskey
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
Whipped cream (topping) or Heavy cream
8-12 ounces brewed espresso or dark roast coffee (hot)
Microwave a coffee mug or glass mug with hot water on high for about 60 seconds, remove from microwave and let sit for 3 minutes, then pour out the water. The goal is a hot mug. If your mug isn’t hot, repeat as needed.
Add the Boxergrail whiskey and sugar to the heated glass, fill to about ¾ of the way with the espresso, and stir until combined.
Top with as much whipped cream as desired.
