Fans of Irish Coffees, Espresso Martinis and nips of whiskey in their post-dinner espresso – this one is for you. Jameson Irish Whiskey are bringing back its delicious cold brew bottling, for a limited time only.
This re-launched expression, brought back by popular demand, is made up of its triple-distilled whiskey and Arabica coffee beans and tastes oh-so-smooth. Think layers of vanilla, toasted oak and dark chocolate with rich coffee aromatics. If you thought you only liked vodka in your Espresso Martinis, this is the game-changer you needed to branch out for the summer.
Whiskey die-hards and new converts alike should give a more mellow serve a try too, allowing the spirituous spice of the whiskey to come through. Mix Jameson Cold Brew in a highball with tonic and a wedge of fresh orange, taking you from sundowners on the rooftop to a bright pick-up as the evening carries on. No tin or shaking required for that one.
Here’s two recipes to get you started:
Serve in: Martini Glass
Garnish: Three espresso beans, if you have them to hand.
Method: SHAKE all the ingredients over ice and fine strain into a chilled glass.
50ml Jameson Cold Brew
25ml espresso coffee
10ml sugar syrup
JAMESON COLD BREW & TONIC
Serve in: Collins Glass
Garnish: Fresh orange slice
Method: POUR ingredients into ice-filled glass and serve.
60ml Jameson Cold Brew
120ml tonic water
The bottle is already available to buy from Dan Murphy’s, but you can also order it from a few special bars and pubs too – because whiskey always tastes better when it’s served by some of Australia’s top hospo talent. We’re talking Shady Pines, The Unicorn, Oxford Tavern, The Taphouse and the Wild Rover in Sydney, and Suzie Wong’s, The Empire, Scottish Prince or the Press Club in Brisbane. Jameson will also be supporting the return of the Brooklyn Standard’s fortnightly “The Don’t Choke” club, so Brisbanites can enjoy their Cold Brew with a side of comedy.
