"Henryk Fitzpatrick | Crafted Pour"

"On March 1st, my friends had their third child, the long-awaited Henryk Michael Fitzpatrick.  In honor of this little Irish boy (born in the month of his big brother, his father, and St. Patrick’s Day itself) and his whole family, I wanted to share my drink for this St. Patrick’s Day: The Henryk Fitzpatrick. Dad is a fan of Jameson and anything with maple syrup. Mom loves Baileys. Henryk is really into milk right now (go figure😄). Howdo youo combine all of these into something that honors them all, is easy to make with one hand, and feels right for this holiday? I started by milk-washing Jameson. If you don’t already know, this is a process that was done to smooth out rougher alcohols and protect cocktails from spoiling. When you milk-wash, you add a spirit or cocktail to the milk, allow it to curdle, and then strain several times. The curds of the milk filter the alcohol, removing most of the drink’s color and fogginess. Milk-washing strips out the alcohol’s tannins (which give alcohol that astringent quality) and gives the drink a softer flavor, a clearer color, and a subtly silky feel. The proteins imparted will also lend a natural froth when shaken. After that, I doubled down and used milk and Baileys to wash the Jameson. Now my Jameson is as smooth as can be, with a touch of the Irish cream flavoring on the back end. To that, coffee—both of my friends are also teachers, and we share a love of coffee. Not to mention the need for coffee as a teacher and parent (especially with a newborn). So strong, cold-brew coffee was called for. With a little maple syrup to sweeten it and the fernet adding a lightly minty herbaceous quality, this Irish coffee-inspired drink is easy to sip, whether hot or cold, light in alcohol, and gives that soul-strengthening boost you get from good coffee, spending time with friends, and baby snuggles.  So everyone, please, raise one (or two) of these to the sky and give a cheer for the newest member of our friend family: Henryk Michael Fitzpatrick!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!  Thank you to my guy at Spirits (https://www.facebook.com/SpiritsMQT?mibextid=uzlsIk) for having the Fernet I was searching for (and the new Grand Cabaret Hendrick’s). You’re the best!", "undefined", "Henryk Fitzpatrick ",

Henryk Fitzpatrick By , May 8, 2009 On March 1st, my friends had their third child, the long-awaited Henryk Michael Fitzpatrick. 

In honor of this little Irish boy (born in the month of his big brother, his father, and St. Patrick’s Day itself) and his whole family, I wanted to share my drink for this St. Patrick’s Day: The Henryk Fitzpatrick.

Dad is a fan of Jameson and anything with maple syrup. Mom loves Baileys. Henryk is really into milk right now (go figure😄). Howdo youo combine all of these into something that honors them all, is easy to make with one hand, and feels right for this holiday?

You’re the best! Ingredients: - Milk And Baileys-washed Jameson Irish Whisky - Fernet Branca Instructions: Message me for the recipe and process for milk and Baileys washing. Shake briefly for a light froth, and strain into a chilled coupe. Or Build it into your glass or mug. Add all ingredients in a chilled glass over ice if cold, or into a preheated mug if hot. Give it a good stir and enjoy.  If heating, I suggest a coffee mug or Irish coffee glass. If cold, I like a rock glass to build in or a coupe if shaking.
