Seventeen #15 sized coffee beans
1.225 oz of Welsh Whisky
Single measure of pre-brewed coffee
Four drops of Welsh bitters
Two measures of double cream
Four cuboidal shards of glacial ice
First pre-select your coffee beans:
Use a Vernier caliper set to a #15 sized-bean, or 15/64"
Measure and inspect your beans diligently, setting aside any rejects with a ruthless objectivity.
Select seventeen perfectly sized beans for use later.
Next prepare the cocktail:
Start by weighing out precisely 1.225 ounces of Welsh Whisky from the Baglan distillery.
Add a single measure of strong pre-brewed coffee.
Add four drops of Welsh bitters, taking care to deliver each drop sympathetically.
Take two measures of double cream. Pour carefully to avoid clotting.
Finally add four cuboidal shards of your favorite glacial ice.
Shake vigorously with the right-handed over-arm method for approximately 13 seconds. Maintain an absolute consistency of rhythm and rotational momentum.
Pour into a wonderful antique lead crystal glass. This adds a delightful element of toxicity to the drink.
Finally take the coffee beans that you selected earlier and arrange them into the classic spread-eagled dragon motif on the top of the glass.
