Some folks like to spike their morning cup of Joe with the occasional bit of whiskey, whether it’s an “Irish coffee” or a similar concoction. Here’s a way to switch up that morning brew with a taste of booze but without the woozy after-effects.
Fire Dept. Coffee of Rockford, Ill., crafts a line of “spirit infused” coffees, including a version with bourbon that offers a nice caffeine kick with a complex taste. The bourbon essence is most pronounced in the smell. In terms of flavor, the blend brings a richness and a semi-sweet overtone that works well at the morning table.
