How to Make Irish Coffee

HideShow Media
Fill a tall glass (traditionally with a stem) with hot boiling water, leave to stand and then pour away the water.
Whip the cream until the bubbles disappear and it has just started to thicken and form ribbons underneath the whisk. Put back in the refrigerator.
Dissolve the sugar in 2 tablespoons of hot water in a small pan and bring to a boil. Add some freshly brewed rich coffee and stir. Then remove from heat and stir in the whisky.
Pour the mixture of whisky, sugar and coffee into the bottom of the pre-heated glass.
Take the cold cream out of the fridge, whisk once again, then pour it on over the back of a spoon (to prevent it from sinking) until you hit the rim of the glass.
Grate a little nutmeg over the top and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

You can also serve the Irish Coffee with whipped cream garnished on top along with nutmeg.
