The story of the original whisky coffee has many beginnings, with the most common recipes featuring Irish whisky. The Glenlivet 12-year-old has both the character to stand up to coffee and the approachability to work with a combination of softer, sweet and creamy flavours. This recipe uses dark chocolate and hot pepper to integrate with the whisky and hot coffee, topped off with a finish of cold unsweetened cream. 

You will need:

  • 40ml The Glenlivet 12-year-old
  • 15ml liquid chocolate
  • 10ml simple syrup 
  • 75ml Americano coffee or strong filter coffee 
  • 1 small pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 40ml lightly whipped double cream 

To make:

  1. Warm a small wine glass with boiling water, then pour out. 
  2. Mix the chocolate, whisky, coffee, syrup and cayenne pepper together in the heated glass. 
  3. Gently pour the cream over the back of a spoon to create a creamy layer. 
  4. Garnish with chocolate shavings, adding another small pinch of cayenne pepper.
