NIK NAKS, JAFFA CAKES. & IRISH COFFEE - MY THREE ADDICTIONS

The Carvery deal is the hottest deal on the site and we went there tonight when coming back from the shops.

Having paid out a rather unreasonable £6 for an Irish coffee in an Indian restaurant last week, I was pretty shocked when our bill for two meals, two Irish coffees, and two soft drinks was about £14.

Checking the bill revealed- £2.45 for the Irish coffee.

Its tempting to go there now for their quiz night!!!

Voting is starting off VERY coldly and its been also expired and restarted by a mod - but has anyone suggested a better price?

Would an equal lack of enthusiasm be shown if it was a pub doing cheap pints?

I am sure there is no shortage of other Irish Coffee addicts here - and the prices vary massively compared to any other drink.

So far you've only had it with a meal in your posts



In the UK you only really get it with meals - although as the Crown Carvery is also a pub, obviously you could order it as a normal drink.

On holiday in Spain most bars will sell it - and earlier this month I was in Riga - and they do their local equivalent with "black balsam" replacing whiskey.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riga_Black_Balsam

It can be had as it is, on the rocks or mixed with schnapps, akvavit, or vodka, or warm, in tea, coffee or black currant juice, or mixed with soda water or a soft drink, or in any variety of cocktails. It is also occasionally enjoyed as a topping on ice-cream.


Most other countries also have a version of coffee with their local spirit or liqueur.

Wikipedia lists them under Liqueur Coffees....

* Whisky Coffee, Whisky
o Highland Coffee or Cup o' Evening, Scotch whisky
o Irish Coffee, Irish whiskey
* Brandy Coffee, Brandy
o French Coffee, Grand Marnier
* Italian Classico, Amaretto
* German Coffee, German brandy from grapes or from fruit (for instance Kirschwasser) or with schnapps
* Calypso Coffee, Tia Maria or Kahlúa and rum
* Bailey's Coffee, Baileys Irish Cream
* Sultan Special Coffee, Baileys Irish Cream
* Shin Shin Coffee, Rum
* English Coffee, Gin
* Jamaican Coffee, Tia Maria & Rum
* Monk's Coffee, (Benedictine)
* Cafe Royale, (Brandy)
* Seville Coffee, (Cointreau)
* Witch's Coffee, (Strega)
* Russian Coffee, (Vodka)
* Parisienne Coffee, (Brandy)
* Australian Coffee, (Cask Wine/Goon)
* Corfu Coffee, Koum Quat liquor

Its just a shame that with the UK being the main producer of whisky - that Irish/liqueur coffee is largely overlooked as a drink you would have without a meal.

I could possibly find a cafe selling Irish Coffee for less, does that mean it's the same Irish Coffee? Will I prefer that one or this one? What Coffee/whiskey do they use? How can I compare a 'deal' if I don't know what it is I'm comparing too?

Taking whatsthepoint's post into consideration, you may well find the Coffee costs more if NOT taken with a meal. Yes this 'carvery' place is a pub but do we know if the price is the same if it is ordered without a meal?

There are far too many variables here. This is a 'discussion' not a deal.

Oh and by the way, with a few exceptions, the spelling is WHISKY for Scottish whisky. The spelling is WHISKEY for [SIZE="2"]Irish[/SIZE] and American whiskey.

Its a fair point, the whisky content varies vastly (and invariably tends to be whisky and not whiskey despite the name being Irish Coffee). From an English wet glass measure (25cc), past the most common Scottish measure (35cc) - to ones I had in Andorra and Africa, where they never bothered with water!

However, most in the UK will be between the 25 and 35 measures normally dished out in bars, with a bias towards the latter in Scotland (although the Carvery one tasted very 25cc). So although some will be better than others, its still a deal, as its the price of a drink that there is no fixed standard to base upon, but not a vast amount of difference over what goes in it (hopefully).

The way the charging system works in the Carvery, is for food you pay in advance and get a ticket the person carving takes from you when you go for your meal. All drinks can be bought at the bar (where you pay normally) or ordered at your table (where they leave a bill and you pay later). So its all charged at the same whether you have a meal or not (there is a menu style pricelist on each table). Although I last bought one at the bar at in summer - and I am fairly sure it was only £2.40 then.

Lastly - I stuck to the whisky/whiskey spellings in the entire thread. As mentioned above, Irish Coffee normally contains whisky rather than whiskey - due to it being invariably cheaper and more readily available, and anyway most subtleties of flavour differences are lost to the coffee. However, the one that really annoys me is "Scotch" whisky - although I have yet to hear anyone local actually say that here.

How would you know if this is a decent deal? You're not allowed alcohol Andy, you're not old enough! And don't be giving it the big 'I am'.
