You’ll get the recipe for the cream and brown simple syrup below. Here’s how to make the drink.
Add the simple syrup to the glass, add Amaretto and Bourbon, stir carefully. Pour the coffee into the glass. Then spoon in the whipped almond cream and sprinkle some cinnamon or cacao on top. Serve.
Brown Simple Syrup
Many recipes for Irish coffee wants you to add raw brown sugar. That rarely melts the right way so using a simple syrup is much better. This is just like any simple syrup but you use brown sugar instead of white.
1 part water
1 part brown sugar
Bring to a boil, set aside and leave to cool. Done.
1 cup / 2 dl heavy cream
2 tsp sugar
Toast the almonds in a dry pan until golden. Do it on medium heat and keep an eye on the almonds all the time, they burn quite easily. Leave the almonds to cool. Add the cream, sugar and almonds to a jar and leave to marinate for a few hours. The strain the cream to remove the almonds and whip it like you whip regular cream.
The result is a whipped cream with a clear not of toasted almonds. Yum.
