For this cocktail, Jameson brand ambassador Killian Lee uses Jameson Caskmates, which is regular Jameson that has been finished in beer casks. The "eye-opening" part of this cocktail comes from the addition of cold-brew coffee. This is tempered by ginger–brown-sugar syrup and finished off with a bit of stout.
