On World Chocolate Day, chocolate lovers from all over the world unite to celebrate perhaps the most delicious discovery made by man in centuries. Celebrated on 7th July each year, World Chocolate Day is commemorated by consuming chocolate in whatever form you like it.
Of course none of us really require a specific day to express our love for the things we treasure the most, whether it’s chocolate or whisky but it is always nice to have a reason to do so.
For our community of whiskey lovers that also happen to share a penchant for the delicious chocolaty goodness, we have the perfect whiskey cocktails that combine your favourite sinful indulgences.
The Irish Coffee Affogato is a unique twist on a traditional Italian coffee-based dessert that comprises of a shot of espresso and vanilla ice-cream. Although you can see why this combination can be made significantly better with some good ol’ Irish whiskey wouldn’t you say?
Step 1: Combine the Cold Brew Coffee, Jameson Irish whiskey and Kahlua Cream in a tumbler glass, or coffee mug of your choice. Gently stir with a bar spoon.
Step 2: Scoop out your favourite vanilla or coffee flavoured ice-cream and add to the container.
Step 3: Add a dollop of whipped cream for garnish.
Enjoy the Irish Coffee Affogato, one of the easiest whiskey cocktails, and most definitely the most mouth-watering one.
The three wise men – Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam all contribute to making the perfect shot— one of those that give that terrific kick. A hint of scotch, a touch of Bourbon, and a dash of Tennessee— what more can you ask for? There are multiple ways to mix the cocktail.
You wake up in the morning to strains of the classic “American Pie” by Don McLean playing somewhere and you instantly start singing along. Next thing you know, it already feels like summer and you want to fix a drink. But you don’t want it to be too heavy, just something refreshing to complement your breakfast-- almost like a glass of fresh fruit juice.
