Demerara Syrup Recipes

The Charleston Breakfast Coffee

This warming cocktail is a Southerner's take on Irish coffee, richer and more grain-forward in flavor, with a bonus of being made with local whiskey. If you'd like to scale up this recipe to serve more than one person, double the volume of heavy cream and shake it in a quart jar. Increase the cocktail ingredients by the number of cocktails you'd like to make.


2 oz Your Favorite Whiskey

1 oz Eli Mason Demerara Syrup

4 oz Brewed dark-roast coffee

2-3 oz Heavy cream  


Garnish: Mason jar shaken Whipping Cream to make it easy to pour.
