Finally, a responsible way to enjoy an Irish coffee before noon. The good people at Jack Daniel's just announced a new Tennessee tipple -- Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Coffee. Yes, that's roasted coffee beans infused with whiskey.
If combining coffee and booze in a morning beverage sounds like whiskey business, you should know: your morning cup o' Jack will contain no actual alcohol. So it's safe for work -- you can even sip it as you drive into work (it's street legal). What you will get instead of a boozy buzz, according to Charlie Newman, owner and roast master of World Coffee, is "the authentic taste and aroma of Jack Daniel’s.”
Jack's also making a decaffeinated version -- for a completely buzz-free experience. Although upon sober reflection, we think decaf whiskey-infused coffee might be a worthy choice for a night-cap of Irish Coffee with a Tennessee twist.
Want to try it out? You can order it online at Jack Daniel's. Or if you're in the area, it's currently available at the Lynchburg Hardware and General Store in Lynchburg, Tennessee. A nationwide rollout to stores is expected to follow.
