RECIPES | Starward recently released their newest whisky, Two Fold, and to celebrate we were asked to develop a cocktail for them. The whisky is entirely matured in Australian wine barrels and combines Australian wheat and malted barley to create a whisky that’s milder than some of their others, with more of the wine barrel’s flavours coming through. To balance with this milder expression, we decided to make a cocktail using Vietnamese coffee and bitters.

The coffee is brewed traditionally, by filter to ensure a lighter flavour that balances well with the whisky, while the bitters adds a level of aromatic complexity to the mix. The result is a surprisingly light cocktail relative to other whisky and coffee based drinks, that tastes great.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes / Cooking time: n/a / Serves: 1


  • 30ml Starward Two Shot whisky
  • 60ml Vietnamese coffee
  • 10 drops orange bitters
  • ice cubes


  1. Brew 60ml of Vietnamese coffee using a drip filter.
  2. Half fill a tumbler with ice cubes and add the whisky, coffee, and bitters.
  3. Stir and serve.


Ensure you use a sweet bitters for this cocktail. If you use one without much sweetness, add 10ml of sugar syrup to balance the cocktail.

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.
