The flavor is pretty decent, and I suppose if you need an eye-opener the morning after a wild night, this might just be what the doctor ordered. I particularly like the way rum works with coffee.
The key here is to make sure that everything stays hot, so definitely pre-warm the glass, and you can even re-heat everything in a microwave once it’s in the glass if need be.
2oz light rum
2oz coffee-flavored brandy
0.5oz simple syrup
4oz hot strong brewed coffee
Stir in pre-warmed Irish coffee glass.
