Putting a Shot of Leprechaun in an Irish Coffee!
Aye, and it's a lovely little dram of whiskey and espresso poured over magical Leprechaun spheres of golden delicious Irish Cream and milk with a bit o' gold at the end of the cocktail!
SHOT O' GOLD
1/2 Oz. Cold Espresso
1/2 Oz. Irish Whiskey
1 Oz. Irish Cream Liqueur
1-1/2 Oz. Milk
Dark Chocolate Pieces
Edible Gold Flakes
Edible Gold Leaf
Silicon Mold for round spheres
Pastry Bag or Baggie to pipe Chocolate Garnish
Two Small Plates
Melt your dark chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave, transfer to a pastry bag or baggie with the tip of one corner cut off and pipe a few fun shapes. You can pick the best one to set atop your shot glass.
Combine the Irish Cream Liqueur and the milk then freeze in small round molds.
Brew your espresso and set in the refrigerator to chill.
Put some Irish Cream Liqueur into one of the plates and some coffee grounds mixed with cocoa in the other then dip your glass rim in the Irish Cream then into the coffee grounds/cocoa powder to rim.
Place your glass in the freezer to chill.
When it's time to serve your cocktail:
Add 1 cup of ice to a cocktail shaker, pour in the whiskey and the espresso and shake until well chilled.
Place two of the frozen Irish Cream spheres in the glass.
Pour the whiskey/espresso over the spheres.
Top off the glass with your chocolate garnish.
Set the Shot O' Gold onto a plate filled with the ground coffee, place a few edible gold flakes around and serve.
