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


Ingredients

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

Method

  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.

Notes

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.
