The Dead Rabbit’s Irish Coffee Recipe
Noah Rothbaum secures the components for Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon's cocktail variation
There's always a time and a place for an Irish Coffee—and if you're going to commit to one, it might as well be the best. Spirits expert, Daily Beast Senior Editor and CH friend Noah Rothbaum might have just uncovered exactly that. Not only did Rothbaum secure the recipe for the Dead Rabbit's Irish Coffee, he also makes the case for having one when at the world-famous bar. As for what's inside: Bushmills and coffee from Sumatra beans do the legwork here and everything else comes down to proportion and nuance. This is simple enough to make at home but as Rothbaum makes clear, it's worth ordering at the acclaimed establishment.
