A Sip of Bliss: Kentucky Coffee with Bourbon and Honey
Are you looking for a way to spice up your dull winter days? Or wanting to escape from the humdrum of life? A cup of Joe with a good old American twist is your saviour that is guaranteed to add a zest and vigour to your being.
The name of the coffee says it all and you are not wrong in assuming that it consists of coffee and bourbon. Simplicity is the key in creating this true masterpiece. With Irish cream and Spanish Coffee dominating the scene, America’s old school favourite bourbon whiskey is often ignored as an ingredient. A dash of honey liqueur with its sweetness and bourbon adds a new dimension to your mugs of insipid coffee.
There is no better match than the combination of Wild Turkey Bourbon and the brand's honey liqueur. The sweetness and the flavour is brought up subtly which is why this version of coffee is a hit among whiskey lovers. The key to your success lies in preparing a thick and rich coffee. Use a freshly ground dark roasted beans on a French press
If you are more of a curious soul and looking for ways to experiment, its best to choose one that has a similar flavor and quality. Knob Creek and Dry Fly Bourbon 101 can be the best alternative.
