Irish Coffee is a rich and creamy spiked coffee that is perfect for chilly winter nights, St. Patrick's Day or just because it is delicious.
Brew up some strong coffee, add sugar and Irish whiskey and some thick cream on top. Then curl up in front of the fireplace to relax and enjoy!
As any fan of Blue Bloods knows, the trick to keeping the cream on top is to hold a spoon upside down over the coffee then pour the cream slowly on to the back of the spoon.
- 1 ½ oz Irish Whiskey
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 8 ounce hot coffee
- heavy whipping cream (to taste)
- Warm coffee mug or stemmed glass coffee mug with hot water just before mixing.
- Pour whiskey and sugar into mug. Fill with coffee, leaving room at the top to add the cream. Stir thoroughly.
- Using the back of a spoon, slowly pour the cream so it sets on top of the mixture. Do not stir the cream into the coffee mixture. Sip through the cream for a traditional taste.
