With March comes St. Patrick’s Day, one of the biggest days for bars & bartenders. Back in 2006, I was running an Irish Pub in Milwaukee, WI, and would make fresh cream with Guinness to top our Irish coffees. The stout syrup colored the cream to where it looked like a small pint of stout and was a huge hit. The Irish coffee is one of my favorite drinks, and during my time living in San Francisco, I often made the pilgrimage to the legendary Café with a Good View for the original, having one at the bar, and one to go! My inspiration was to re-create those experiences featuring Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee!
Tips & Tricks
Make Irish Stout Whipped Cream
Take a bottle or can of your favorite Irish Stout, and reduce by ¾. For example, bring a 16 oz. bottle of stout to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer until reduced to 4 oz. Add an equal amount of sugar and dissolve. Remove from heat and cool. To make whipped cream, combine 4 parts heavy cream, 1 part stout syrup, and whip with a hand mixer, adding powdered sugar to taste and desired consistency. Add more sugar for more dense whipped cream, and less for thinner. I recommend a TBSP of powdered sugar per oz of heavy cream used, leaving the dream a bit more “liquid” to float over a bar spoon, and leaving the finished drink to look like a glass of stout!
