Its take on Irish coffee is one of a handful of java-based cocktails on a robust dessert menu. Caffeine and alcohol are joined by cream whipped in-house and a rock-candy swizzle.

And when it's snowing, the drink's available for $1.

"Normally it catches word, and everyone rushes in," said bartender Brittney Kuczynski. "People will be shopping, and they'll come in for a few Irish coffees to warm up."

Drink:

3/4 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey

1/2 oz. dark creme de cacao

1/2 oz. simple syrup

1/2 oz. half-and-half

5 oz. coffee

Whipped cream:

1 cup heavy cream

1 oz. simple syrup

1. Combine liquor, cream, syrup and coffee in a mug. Glass shows off the drink, and the handle helps with the heat. Stir.

2. To make whipped cream, combine heavy cream and simple syrup in a mixing bowl. Whisk briskly until light and fluffy. Spoon onto cocktail, covering the surface.

3. Garnish with stick of rock candy.
