The name of the coffee says it all and you are not wrong in assuming that it consists of coffee and bourbon. Simplicity is the key in creating this true masterpiece. With Irish cream and Spanish Coffee dominating the scene America’s old school favorite bourbon is often ignored as an ingredient. A dash of honey liqueur with its sweetness and bourbon adds a new dimension to your mugs of insipid coffee.
1 ounce of Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon Whiskey
1/2 ounce Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur
Whipped cream, which is optional
Mix your own Kentucky Coffee…
Add bourbon and liqueur to your pre-heated coffee mug. Pour hot coffee and whipped cream on top. Voila! Your Kentucky Coffee is ready.
There is no better match than the combination of Wild Turkey Bourbon and the brand's honey liqueur. The sweetness and the flavor is brought up subtly which is why this version of coffee is a hit among whiskey lovers.
If you are more of a curious soul and looking for ways to experiment, its best to choose one that has a similar flavor and quality. Knob Creek and Dry Fly Bourbon 101 can be the best alternative.
Evan Williams Honey Reserve can be used as a better alternative which has a nice whiskey base. Barenjager which is a German honey liqueur is a better option too. It has a mish mash of rustiness and refinement with a bit of Kentucky like persona.
The key to your success lies in preparing a thick and rich coffee. Use a freshly ground dark roasted beans on a French press.
