The Dark Months Are for Sipping Irish Coffee Drinks at the Dead Rabbit
With temps cooling, leaves falling and the sun setting what feels like 15 minutes after it rises, we could all use a toasty little pick-me-up. Thankfully, famed cocktail bar the Dead Rabbit has just what the SAD doctor ordered: top-tier Irish coffee drinks, with all the Irish whiskey and whipped cream your sun-deprived little heart could want.
The classic Irish coffee ($16) is a mix of Bushmills Irish Whiskey, Calendar coffee (from Ireland!) and Demerara sugar; it comes piping hot and topped with freshly whipped cream and nutmeg, making it a true delight ready to warm up your insides.
If you’re one of those sickos who drinks cold brew in the winter, or just likes a good cocktail with a kick, the Irish whiskey martini ($19) is a nice alternative. Dead Rabbit’s own Irish whiskey is mixed with a silky coffee liqueur espresso, then sweetened with Demerara sugar and spiced with nutmeg. The result is a super-smooth (and photogenic) drink sure to perk you up even in the worst windchill.
If neither of these appeal, or it takes 20 cups of joe to get you going, other coffee drinks on the menu include an Irish American coffee ($17) made with Keeper’s Heart Irish and American Whiskey; a decadent Irish coffee Alexander ($20) comprising Slane Irish Whiskey, Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, cacao and Cassis liqueur, and topped with a cream float; and a Gaelic coffee ($19, pictured with friends below), a classic Irish coffee made with Powers Three Swallow Pot Still Irish Whiskey instead of Bushmills.
