Irish Coffee Alternative
For many, Irish Coffee is a drink that can warm a person with delight just from hearing mention of the name. A classic combination of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and cream, this drink makes an absolutely decadent and wonderful after-dinner cocktail!
Irish coffee originated in the 1940s when passengers disembarked from a flight on a particularly nasty winter evening, chef Joe Sheridan welcomed them with this warming cocktail, a brand new creation. The ingenuity of chefs like Sheridan is inspiring to us in our kitchens here in Amoretti. His story, like so many others, is a part of the story we create in our kitchens day in and day out.
With Irish coffee in mind, we created Amoretti Premium Espresso Coffee Syrup. One of many unique drink syrups from our offerings, the Espresso Coffee Syrup makes for a delicious substitute in Irish coffee. Maybe you aren’t a coffee drinker, or perhaps you’d like to enjoy an Irish coffee without the caffeine. Whatever your reason may be, Amoretti Premium Espresso Coffee Syrup is the perfect substitute for the actual coffee. If you won’t have the real thing, this should get you as close as possible—and you might find you like it better!
Amoretti Irish Coffee Substitution:
- Bring hot water to a near boil.
- Pour six ounces or so into a mug.
- Add a half-ounce of Amoretti Premium Espresso Coffee Syrup.
- Add cream to taste.
- Add a shot of Irish whiskey.
- Top with whipped cream.
We think substituting the hot water, Espresso Coffee Syrup, and adding a little cream can make a delicious substitute for actual coffee should you be looking for a way to exclude coffee from this wonderful cocktail! Maybe you’ve been making a similar substitution of your own? If so, we’d love to hear about it and improve upon our own recipe.
Also, we have several other unique beverage syrups you may want to consider adding in addition to Amoretti Premium Espresso Coffee Syrup! Try adding a dash of Amoretti Premium Caramel Syrup to really make your Irish Coffee something special! And, of course, we can’t fail to mention Amoretti Premium Irish Cream Syrup! With our unique product offerings, the only limit to what you might create is your imagination. Have fun with your experiments, and enjoy your Irish Coffee responsibly!
