Gaelic Coffee

The booze: Old-school digestif Lazzaroni Amaretto — produced in Saronno, Italy, since 1851

combines a brandy base with the flavor of the town’s famous almond cookies.

The drink: The amaretto’s sweetness takes the edge off of this supercharged Irish-coffee variation. A velvety shot of bitter espresso enriches a woody Irish-whiskey-and-Scotch base, topped with a snowy peak of whipped cream.
