The Glenlivet Spiced Spey Coffee

The story of the original whisky coffee has many beginnings, with the most common recipes featuring Irish whiskey. The Glenlivet 12 Year Old has both the character to stand up to coffee and the approachability to work with a combination of softer, sweet flavors. This recipe uses dark chocolate and hot pepper to integrate with the whisky and hot coffee, topped off with a finish of cold unsweetened cream.
