How to Make an Authentic Irish Coffee
Posted 3/20/2012 7:12:00 PM

So as you know, Jaxon and I just returned from Dublin, Ireland. We had the trip of a lifetime over St. Patrick's Day (courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey). We broadcast live Friday and Saturday from the old Jameson Distillery and basically ate and drank every other waking second of the trip. It was awesome. During one of the broadcasts, Jaxon interviewed a bartender at the Jameson Distillery who makes REALLY great Irish coffee. He gave us the recipe on the air and we've received a bunch of listener e-mails since, asking us for the recipe. So here it is! Listen to the interview to the right of the page for instructions from the bartender himself, or see below for my best translation:

Jameson Irish Coffee

1.) Preheat your Irish coffee glass.
2.) Add two teaspoons of brown sugar to the glass.
3.) Add a generous shot of Jameson.
4.) Top with fresh coffee (best if brewed within the hour).
5.) Stir well.
6.) Whip your cream well for 15 seconds with a cocktail shaker.
7.) Pour cream into glass over the back of a hot spoon (Cream should float. If not... just drink all of your mistakes!)
 
Ta dah! An authentic Irish coffee! Enjoy!

Jaxon's Interviews:

Mo Lowda & The Humble is one of the coolest band names we've seen to date, which is why they are April's Local Shots Artist of the Month! ...Kidding- though the name is groovy, the music is a way better reason to check these guys out. The Temple U. trio gained a lot of traction after the release of their first full-length record Curse The Weather, building upon their established reputation as one of the best alt-rock bands in the city. Today we played the track "The Way Home"; stream it now, and get show dates plus a whole lot more on the Artist of the Month page.

Tunage on the Local Shots Podcast is brought to you today by Goodnight Lights! This song, which has an excellent 90s-fuzz vibe, is called "Convinced" and it'll be included on their upcoming EP - keep an eye on goodnight-lights.com for more info on that release. Check out the brand spankin' new video for the track below. Their next show is this Friday at The Fire; get details HERE.

Looking to take advantage of the amazing weather forecasted for this weekend? Here's another show that we on the Local Shots Podcast recommend: Soraia will be playing the V Fund Benefit tomorrow at the Robbinsville Indoor Stadium in NJ! Also catch Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes and John Eddie there - tickets are available HERE. Check out more show dates on Soraia.com. Here's a song off the record In The Valley Of Love And Guns called "Want What I Want".

 
What's up Philly? Jaxon here. Check out my show weekday afternoons from 3-7 on the Mighty MMR. We'll have Jaxon's iPod, the Mystery Theme and even the occasional game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. What better way to enjoy that contact high you scored while listening to Pierre?
