The Secret to Making Better Irish Coffees ☕

And celebrating World Gin Day.

June 10th was World Gin Day and we, like almost every other gin distillery, had a massive day of celebrations. To kick the day off we hosted 50 people for a bottomless brunch then turned it on with live entertainment and plenty of gin giveaways! It was great to be able to host quite a few subscribers of the channel on the day.

As you can see, we enjoyed a few cheeky gins ourselves.. 😋


The Flippin' Bananas has been on my to do list for way too long (as well as many, many others). It was created by Michael Matthew for the 2022 Mr Black Coffee Cocktail Challenge and took out 1st place! 🏆



Here's a very handy tip if you frequently make Irish Coffees or Dominicanas - and if you haven't tried a Dominicana yet, you need to ASAP!

Follow these steps to whip cream in less than 30 seconds.

  1. Into a cocktail shaker, measure the required amount of cream (the volume will double so don't fill the shaker more than half way)

  2. Remove the spring from your hawthorne strainer and add it to your shaker

  3. Shake it vigorously

  4. Note that it will thicken very quickly so listen for the change in consistency

  5. Pour atop your favourite cocktail
