Winter comes back with vengeance, luckily we got this recipe created by mixologist Daniel Hyatt of Alembic in San Francisco. Sure, there’s no Irish Whiskey, but the 100 proof Laird’s Applejack gives it a nice kick. The combo of Baileys & Lairds really makes this a twist on the classic Irish Coffee.
