Nothing more that we love than a good Irish coffee, especially when St. Patrick's Day gives us an excuse to drink all the whiskey and coffee concoctions we want. And then we got to thinking - what if we added a classically Irish beer to it?
There's nothing we really love more than a great stout. Whether it's our Oatmeal Stout or a milk stout (like Left Hand Brewing Company's Milk Stout Nitro, or any one of the other beers we tried for St. Patrick's Day), a stout always brings out the creamy, malty flavors we crave this time of year. So we figured a rich stout would add just the right amount of cream to our Irish coffees. Since we had so much fun experimenting with beer-infused simple syrups making a Tom Collins, we gave it another whirl, this time adding a dollop of vanilla extract to make a new simple syrup. We think just a dash of beer adds all the right flavor to our St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
