By KRUPS Barista Sam Lewontin —tastytots17
ounces hot filter coffee
ounces Irish whiskey
ounce Demerara syrup
dashes Dale DeGroff Pimento bitters
ounces half and half
- Combine coffee, whiskey, Demerara syrup, and bitters in your favorite coffee mug. Stir to combine.
- Steam half and half, pour over the top of the coffee-whiskey mixture, and garnish with freshly-grated nutmeg.
- If you prefer, add whipped cream.
- If you can't locate bottled Demerara syrup in a store near you, you can make your own by dissolving two parts Demerara sugar in one part boiling water, and stirring until fully integrated.
