What are some typical Irish coffee variations?
There are a few common variations on the traditional Irish coffee. You can create a sweeter, creamier drink by adding Irish cream liqueur to the traditional cocktail recipe. For a smokier flavor, replace Irish whiskey with Scotch to create a Highland coffee, or use bourbon for a Kentucky coffee.
You can also get creative and experiment with different flavor syrups and toppings for your Irish coffee. You can add in homemade cinnamon simple syrup to make Irish coffee feel more festive around the holidays, or top your cocktail with a drizzle of chocolate sauce to make it even more enticing.
