Cafe du Catnip Cocktail Ninth Ward

Think of this as an Irish coffee by way of Jackson Square — an original born out of a classic. Served at Ninth Ward in New York City, this dessert-like drink features Café du Monde coffee spiked with Catdaddy Moonshine and Bailey's and is topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces Catdaddy Carolina Moonshine
  • 1 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 cup brewed Café du Monde coffee with chicory
  • Whipped cream, for topping

Directions

Combine the moonshine and Bailey's in a hurricane glass or mug. Add coffee and top with a healthy dollop of whipped cream.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
