The Irish Coffee is a classic cocktail that gets a new twist every now and then. This is one of them and, as much as I love the original, the touch of sweet butterscotch is a nice change of pace.
The Caramel Irish Coffee was created at Haven Rooftop, which looks down on New York City's Times Square. The variation is quite simple: add Irish cream, butterscotch schnapps, and a drizzle of caramel. It is actually nice to offer guests alongside the Irish Coffee, because those who would like a sweeter drink can opt for the caramel version, and both make a great after dinner drink.
- Warm a mug or Irish coffee glass by pouring hot water inside. Allow this to set for a few minutes, then dump the water.
- Add all of the ingredients to the warm mug and stir.
- Top with whipped cream and drizzle caramel on top.
