  • 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.

  1. Prepare the Espresso in a small cup.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour into the serving glass, filtering the ice with a strainer.
  4. Pour the cream, which should be very cold, into the mini shaker, and shake until it becomes quite thick.
  5. Gently rest the cream on the surface of the cocktail, making it run down the back of the mixing spoon.
  6. Decorate with a sprinkling of cocoa powder and two coffee beans, and serve.
