Servings: 6 – 4 oz servings

4.5 mg THC per serving
*Milligrams per serving based on Kiva’s Terra Espresso beans 5 mg THC content.
- 1 ½ cups Jameson Irish Whisky (we are going to boil out the alcohol content)

- 1 shot of espresso or 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 1 cup Half and Half

- In a blender, add ice cubes, vanilla, espresso, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, Jameson and Kiva Terra Espresso beans.
- Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Strain through a fine strainer or cheesecloth and voila!
