Developed as one of the ‘virgin flavour’ range, MONIN Irish syrup has a flavour profile which is similar to Irish cream, a cream liqueur based on whiskey, cream and coffee, for use in non-alcoholic after-dinner drinks.
Irish coffee is a popular after-dinner drink consisting of hot coffee, sugar and whisky topped with thick cream, through which the coffee is drunk.
The story goes that the first Irish coffee was created by Joe Sheridan, head chef at Foynes, County Limerick. He created coffee for a group of American tourists who had just arrived in Ireland on a miserable winter night and added the whiskey to warm them up. When they enquired what it was, Joe Sheridan said it was ‘Irish coffee’.
Perfect for creating non-alcoholic Irish coffees, speciality coffees, dessert cocktails and smoothies, MONIN Irish syrup will add the luck of Irish to your drinks!.

Beverage Innovation Directors tips
With its subtle combination of flavours, MONIN Irish syrup allows you to create tons of coffee based recipes or even dairy preparations. I like to mix it with fresh cream in a canister, in order to garnish an espresso.
