- 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp (25 ml) espresso
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) coffee liqueur
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) irish whiskey
- Approx. 3 tbsp (40 ml) fresh heavy cream
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 coffee beans
- Ice cubes
A homage to the famed writer from which it takes its name, this drink reinterprets the Irish coffee in a cold version. With less Espresso than the great Irish classic and with the addition of coffee liqueur, Joyce has a deep character, with shades of flavor that run from the soft notes of whiskey to the freshness of the shaken cream. A light dusting of cocoa powder and two coffee beans provide the perfect finish.
- Prepare the Espresso in a small cup.
- Put the ice cubes in the mixing glass, filling it 3/4 full. Add the coffee liqueur, the Irish whiskey and, last of all, the Espresso. Cool, mixing the ingredients with the mixing spoon.
- Pour into the serving glass, filtering the ice with a strainer.
- Pour the cream, which should be very cold, into the mini shaker, and shake until it becomes quite thick.
- Gently rest the cream on the surface of the cocktail, making it run down the back of the mixing spoon.
- Decorate with a sprinkling of cocoa powder and two coffee beans, and serve.
