  1. […] I love coffee, I love cocktails, I love warm cocktails. So I guess I love this drink as well. It’s a variety of the old Irish Coffee. But instead of whisky, there is Cognac and instead of just sugar, there is an orange and cardamom syrup, chocolate bitters and grated chocolate on top. You will not regret trying this cocktail. If you rather try a twist on the classic Irish coffee don’t worry, I’ve got a recipe for that too. […]
