A take on traditional Irish coffee, the Boyfriend Irish Coffee is dark, heavy and masculine. Chocolate sings in this coffee cocktail, and every ingredient–the Guinness, cold brew coffee, Irish whiskey and simple syrup–can be tasted. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or National Coffee Day!
#NationalCoffeDay has come and gone, but Valorie and I are still making coffee cocktails for y’all. And after today, we’ve just got one left.
Our fun coffee cocktail series continues today because, well, we all know they’re quite delicious. And we wanted to share some more unique cocktails, as well as some more traditional ones.
Today’s is as traditional as it gets, though we didn’t add whipped cream because we both thought it was decadent enough as it was.
The Boyfriend Irish Coffee is exactly what you would expect it to be.
The drink is dark, flavorful and incredibly strong. But even though the alcohol is quite intense, all the flavors work in harmony and sing together, creating a perfectly balanced cocktail. The Guinness adds some chocolate notes, too, and since chocolate is one of my favorite things, y’all know I enjoyed this.
I just recommend taking it slowly because this drink packs an alcoholic punch.
