A Holiday in TurkeyDelight your taste buds and join me for A Holiday in Turkey. This cardamom inspired cocktail is a riff on a Turkish style coffee. It's smooth, not too sweet, with a velvety texture and a surprising note of chocolate.
Irish LattiniAs a big latte drinker, I was looking for a richer mouthfeel than you get from a traditional Espresso Martini, but something that still let the complex coffee flavors of Mr Black shine. So came up with this richer variation. Whilst the ingredients are not very original, using Irish Whiskey rather than Vodka compliments the Baileys perfectly and adds some extra backbone to the cocktail. The end result is perfectly balanced and does not fall into the trap of some other super sweet Baileys or cream based cocktails... the coffee is still very much the hero here.

Long Ireland Ice TeaI'm so happy with how this turned out. A refreshing long fruity drink which transforms thanks to Mr Black. It contains Irish Whisky and the best tea of all...coffee! Much more respectable than the Long Island Ice Tea, it has just 2.1 standard drinks. For an even lower abv version, use 15ml or 1/2 oz of each ingredient, top with soda, stir a little and lastly top with the bitters. The soda version is sweeter and lighter. Other bitters work well but Peychauds complemented the drink extremely well. Others I tried, added a different dimension instead.
