2 oz Irish whiskey
1 oz Cream Sherry
1 dropper of Bittercube Orange Bitters
Combine all three ingredients in a cocktail mixing glass with ice. Stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail, coupe, or martini glass
2½ oz Kahlua coffee liqueur
½ oz Bailey's Irish cream
Pour Kahlua, almost filling shot glass. Then, carefully and slowly pour Baileys over the back of a spoon. This will give the "Guinness" it's "head."
½ oz clove syrup (recipe below)
2½ oz Guinness Stout
1 oz Irish peated single-malt whiskey such as Connemara
Make the clove syrup by dissolving 1 cup of sugar with one cup of water with 15 whole cloves over high heat. Allow to cool completely.
Pour ½ oz of clove syrup into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. (In the photos in the post we used a jam jar instead of a cocktail shaker.) Add Guinness and whiskey to shaker. Shake for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail, coupe, or martini glass
