Irish coffee is a bewitching combination of sweet, whisky-laced coffee through softly-whipped cream. Very simple, very indulgent, very delicious.

Ingredients of Irish Coffee

  • 50 Ml Unsweetened Cold Whipping Cream
  • 2 Tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
  • 50 Ml Irish Whisky
  • 1 Cup Freshly Brewed Coffee
  • To sprinkle Nutmeg (optional)

How to Make Irish Coffee

  • 1.Fill a tall glass (traditionally with a stem) with hot boiling water, leave to stand and then pour away the water.
  • 2.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.
  • 3.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.
  • 4.Pour the mixture of whisky, sugar and coffee into the bottom of the pre-heated glass.
  • 5.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.
  • 6.Grate a little nutmeg over the top and serve immediately.
