A New Twist On An Old Dram Recipes To Bring Out The Irish In All

A New Twist on​ An Old Dram-Recipes to​ Bring Out the​ Irish In All
There's nothing better than hearty foods to​ chase away winter chills, and​ as​ a​ young man in​ Northern Ireland, Colum Egan relished the​ warming effect of​ his Mother's homemade soup .​
Today, as​ the​ master distiller of​ Old Bushmills Distillery in​ County Antrim-the world's oldest Irish whiskey-Egan still enjoys heating his bones with a​ big bowl of​ soup.
I think soup was bred into me by my mother .​
She says that there is​ both eating and​ drinking in​ it, says Egan.
Another of​ Egan's favorite dishes is​ salmon .​
I​ love the​ thought of​ eating wild salmon from the​ very river that is​ the​ source of​ water for​ our Irish whiskey.
Chefs around the​ globe have long turned to​ spirits to​ add levels of​ complexity and​ flavor to​ their favorite recipes, so it​ should come as​ no surprise that Irish whiskey has a​ place in​ modern recipes that will delight the​ palate long after St .​
Patrick's Day .​
But for​ those seeking tradition, Egan shares his favorite recipe for​ Irish coffee .​
Pour 11/2 ounces of​ Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey into a​ warm glass .​
Fill with strong black coffee and​ top with whipped cream .​
