The Shannon

Whiskey , Modern Classics

The perfect Irish Coffee for a hot day, this light and refreshing cocktail by Mike Di Tota, the head bartender at The Bonnie in New York City, features the right balance of fruitiness and earthiness.
“As we’re moving into warmer weather, we wanted to create a drink that’s more light and refreshing than a traditional Irish Coffee,” says Di Tota. “It does contain actual cold brew, but it’s more focused on pulling out the flavors of coffee through the other ingredients: earthiness and salinity from the Teeling whiskey, fruitiness from the date syrup, smoke from the sea salt and spice from the cardamom. It’s light in body but full of flavor.”
