The Sun Tavern’s Frozen Irish Coffee
The Hatch at The Sun Tavern on busy Bethnal Green Road acts as a shop window to the bar, offering an amazing display of drinks and products available to purchase every day between 12 – 9pm. Visitors can pick up Frozen Irish Coffees and enjoy a cooling pick me up made with Ice Cream, a shot of Espresso and Slane Irish Whiskey.
40ml Irish Whiskey
15ml Coffee Liquor
25ml Espresso Coffee (If you don’t have Espresso you can use a strong instant coffee)
2 x Large scoops of vanilla ice cream
2 x ice cubes
Add all ingredients together into a blender and blend until smooth (be sure not to over blend; your frozen Irish coffee should have the consistency of a very thick milkshake).
Garnish with coffee beans or dust with ground coffee.
