Cowboy Coffee Bar Recipe

Preparing the coffee in a large pan and allowing it to sit for 15 minutes before straining the grounds mimics the way cowboys once made coffee over an open fire. Pour the brew into a carafe, and set it out with the bourbon and whipped cream for guests to help themselves.


10 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup coffee, 1 tablespoon bourbon, and 1 tablespoon whipped cream)
