Boston Mixologists Create Modern Irish Coffee Cocktails for St. Pat’s
BOSTON, MA - In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Baileys is enlisting top Boston cocktail professionals to create a modern version of the Irish Coffee cocktail.
Mixologists, including John Henderson of Scholars, used new wave ingredients, innovative mixology techniques and Baileys to put a creative twist on the classic recipe.
The result is a sophisticated, cocktail alternative to green beer and whiskey that Bostonians can enjoy during their Irish celebrations.
