Coffee, Whisky & Stout Cocktail: Recipe



coffee whisky stout cocktail recipie



RECIPES | Recently we’ve been experimenting with beer and cocktails, figuring out way to use beer as an ingredient in cocktails. One of the easiest kinds of beer to use when making a cocktail is stout. A good base stout goes well with rich, roasted flavours which compliment the roasted dark malts of a stout. One of our favourite creations is this coffee, whisky and stout cocktail which, combined with a bit of vanilla extract to mellow everything out, provides a nicely balanced flavour combination.

Here’s the recipe, and if you want to hear more about beer cocktails, listen to Season 9, Episode 10 of our Brunswick Beer Collective podcast.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes / Serves 2


  • 1 330ml bottle of stout
  • 100ml cold brew coffee
  • 2ml vanilla extract
  • 25ml Hibiki Japanese Harmony whiskey


  1. Combine all the ingredients and stir well. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.


We’ve used Horn Swatter from Old Wives Ales as it’s a great example of a textbook stout without any other flavours added to it. For the coffee, we used a single origin Ethiopian bean from Code Black Coffee Roasters. We’ve used Hibiki Japanese Harmony whiskey, due to the fact that it’s smooth, slightly sweet, and not peaty. Whatever whiskey you use, make sure it exhibits these characteristics – you definitely don’t want a peated whiskey here.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
