Just in time for St. Pat's the Museum of Sports Show shares our favorite Phiilies legend Tug McGraw's Irish Coffee recipe.
TUG MCGRAW’S BROKEN DRUM IRISH COFFEE
8 oz. Coffee
1.5 oz. Jamieson Irish Whiskey (no other brand will due)
1.2 oz. Cointreau or Baileys
1 fresh Orange (for juice and rind)
3 T Raw Sugar Whipped Cream
Squeeze the juice from one orange and place in a saucer.
Add the sugar to another saucer.
Dip the rim of the glass coffee cup into the orange juice and then into the sugar.
Caramelize the rim with a lighter or professional caramelizer.
Pour 8 oz of coffee into the caramelized glass coffee cup; add a spoon so the glass doesn’t break.
Heat the Jamieson in microwave for :30 or ignite for a few second to heat up and then add to coffee.
Add ½ oz of Cointreau or Bailey’s into the coffee.
Top with whipped cream (homemade’s best but Redi-Whip will work too.)
Garnish with a few orange rind shavings.
