Contributed by St. John Frizell
Listed under the “Hot Helpers” category on the drinks menu at Fort Defiance in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, this Irish Coffee by owner St. John Frizell was once dubbed “the best in the known world” by The New York Times.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “The Irish Coffee: 3 Delicious Ways to Reconsider the Famed Cocktail.”
Add the whiskey and simple syrup into a mixing tin.
Add a little boiling water to an Irish Coffee mug to heat it, and nestle the tin in the mug so that the tin heats as well.
Add the heavy cream to a separate mixing tin, and dry-shake (without ice) until the cream thickens.
Dump the water out of the mug, add the whiskey-sugar mixture, and fill with boiling water to about 1 inch below the rim.
Pour the espresso shot followed by the thickened cream on top, and grate cinnamon.
