Subject: The Irish Latte
 

Tonight being the night of the Great Guinness Toast (see more info at http://www.thegreatguinnesstoast.com), I thought I'd make my first CoffeeGeek post the recipie for a drink I invented about a year ago, while working at Leopold's Kafe, an drudgingly excellent Austrian place in Georgetown, Washington, DC.  The Barista there is also the bartender, so I had ample opportunities to experiment with various combinations of coffee and booze.  This is one of my earliest inventions, an espresso-based version of the venerable Irish coffee.  I must say, however, that this recipie seems so intuitive that I wouldn't be surprised if someone else has already laid claim to its invention, in which case I apologize for any accidental plagiarism.

Glassware:

Any 16-oz glass will do.  I always used a standard pint glass, but I would have loved it if I could have found a handled glass.

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. Irish Whiskey (I've always used Jameson or Black Bush)
1.5 oz. Irish Creme liquer
1.5 oz. espresso
10 oz. cold milk or half-and-half

Combine the whiskey and the espresso in the bottom of the glass.  Begin steaming the milk (or 1/2 & 1/2) as you would for a free-poured latte.  When the milk is about 50-75% done steaming, pour in the Irish Creme.  Pour the mixture over the espresso/whiskey mix in the glass and serve immediately.

Note: If you're looking for a stronger drink, I've been successful using only 7 oz. of milk and serving the drink in a 12 oz. handled glass mug.

Slainte!
