While Chiang Mai’s weather is getting cooler and fog can sometimes be seen on top of Suthep mountain, is it time for Irish Coffee yet? I’m sure it is. Irish coffee is a rich blend of hot coffee, brown sugar and fiery whiskey that makes such a pleasing contrast to the cool layer of fresh cream on top. This cocktail gives you license to sip and watch the sunset quietly or talk into the night.
The Consul’s Garden, known for its elegant and classic atmosphere, its beautiful garden along the Ping river and its delicious cuisine, has also quietly mastered the art of Irish coffee. Preparation begins with brewing a strong, locally-roasted coffee before
adding an even stronger shot of Jameson whiskey, a dash of brown sugar, and topped with a heap of heavy cream and a spoon of hot coffee liqueur.
And if you are lucky, the beautiful Ms. Time, the restaurant’s manager, will be your barista. Creating cocktails and coffee drinks is her true passion.
When the weather outside turns grey, leave it to The Consul’s Garden take on the Irish classic to transform a regular Sunday brunch into an allday toddy-sipping affair. But just make sure to save room for the house’s panfried foie gras and famous
smoked salmon salad.
