Holidays is the perfect time for inspirations and new creations, especially in NYC when there are lights, decorations, ornaments and Christmas trees all over. This time also marks the beginning of the winter season and the warm drinks that come along with it. Who doesn’t like to have a warm coffee by the fireplace while opening the presents? I do…
With that idea serving as inspiration for a holiday cocktail, Miss Caipi created an Irish Coffee drink to warm up your spirits! A few days ago, I had the opportunity to meet Noura, a very talented Culinary Artist from a Dunkin Donuts located on Long Island. She introduced me to her holiday Donuts creations for the season, which are considered the best ones done among all the company’s branches all over USA. While photographing her creations and chatting, it came to my mind this would be the perfect opportunity for Miss Caipi to come up with a drink creation, a drink that could be paired with Noura’s Holiday Donuts and one of Dunkin Donuts seasonal coffee flavors.
I was always a fan of coffee, and Irish coffee too; I can go to a Bar and order one once and while, especially in the coldest days to warm up. I am using Teeling Irish Whisky and Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Roll flavored coffee, which is perfect to pair with my Holiday Donuts. Check out the recipe below and try it for yourself!
1 Serving Size
1 ½ Teeling Irish Whisky
4 Oz Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Roll flavor Coffee
2 Oz Almond Milk
1 tsp of Agave Nectar light
1 Cinnamon Stick
Light whipped cream
Using a coffee maker, make the coffee using the instructions in the package. When it is ready, pour the right amount in a coffee cup and add the whiskey, almond milk, agave nectar light, cinnamon stick and stir well. Spray with the light whipped cream and garnish with a candy cane and green sprinkles with you want to get the holiday look.
PS: Can be done in a non alcoholic version too, replacing the alcohol for more Almond Milk
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy your Irish Coffee Caipi during all the season. Don’t forget to leave a comment about the recipe and if you have any ideas and inspirations I would love to hear about it!
