When you're relaxing at home, there's nothing quite like an Irish coffee to get your day started. Here's how the recently-awarded best bar in the world makes theirs.
The Dead Rabbit in New York City recently won the "World's Best Bar" award from Drinks International, and have won "Best Bar In North America" for four years straight, so they know a thing or two about mixing up good drinks. In this video from the Travel + Leisure YouTube channel, Jillian Vose, the beverage director and bar manager of The Dead Rabbit, shows you how to mix up the best Irish coffee of your life.
Start by filling a six-ounce glass with an ounce and a 1/4 of blended Irish whiskey. Next — and this is key — blend some sugar with your hot coffee before you pour it into your glass with the whiskey in it. Then whip some cold, unsweetened cream (30% to 35% fat content) with a protein shaker bottle, and use it to top off your coffee. Now kick back and enjoy.
