Smoked Iced Coffee with Bourbon & Molasses

Dad likes his coffee. Dad loves his bourbon. What better treat for Father's Day than a Bourbon-spiked Iced Coffee? ...Oh yeah, and did we mention we smoked the beans?

- Ingredients - 
4 tablespoons (pre-grind) whole coffee beans, smoked (directions below)
16 oz water
1 oz bourbon
½ oz molasses
optional: cream

- Tools - 
Weston Smoker
wood chips for smoking (we used apple - use something similar that's sweet & not harsh)
coffee grinder (we used our Manual Food Grinder - you could also use our Grain Grinder)
coffee maker or press (a French Press is perfect for this recipe)

How To

Step One | Smoke the Coffee Beans

Soak your wood chips for 30 minutes. Preheat your Smoker to 200 degrees. Fill the water bowl. Once the smoker is preheated and the wood chips are ready, load the wood chips into the box.

Layer a smoker rack with foil and poke small holes all over. Pour on the coffee beans in one layer. Smoke for 1 hour at 200. You can feel free to smoke a whole bag of coffee beans in a batch - you simply only need 4 tablespoons for the coffee.

Step Two | Grind Beans

Once smoked, grind the coffee beans coarsely (like breadcrumbs - not finely like powder).

Step Three | Make Coffee

Bring the water to a boil, then let cool for 1 minute.

Pour the grounds into your French press, then pour the water over them. Stir vigorously, then place the lid onto your press. Let steep 4 minutes, then push down the plunger and pour the coffee into a jar. If you're not using a French press, simply use your coffee maker or press as you usually would.

Step Four | Concoct

While the coffee is still hot, stir in the molasses. To expedite the cooling process (and also get some air into the coffee), pour the coffee back and forth between two jars for about a minute, then place the jar into the fridge until you're ready to use - or if serving 'immediately,' place it into the freezer for 15-30 minutes.

This is a great recipe for cream-in-your-coffee lovers

Once chilled, stir in the bourbon, then pour over ice. It's now ready to enjoy!
