Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the heavy cream and the powdered sugar and beat with a hand mixer until soft peaks form. Set aside.
  • Fill a large glass mug with hot water and pour out. Pour in the coffee and add the granulated and brown sugars, stir until sugars have dissolved. Add in the Irish Whiskey.
  • Spoon the softly whipped cream on top of the coffee. Feel free to dust with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, or nutmeg.

Notes

  • You need to use an Irish Whiskey, preferably Jameson or Bushmills.
  • This recipe is generally servedĀ inĀ Glass Mugs, usually taller mugs with a handle.
  • Make sure to only whip your cream just until soft peaks form, you don't want stiff peaks, you want more of a froth on top of the coffee.
  • If you prefer sweeter Irish Coffees made with Irish Cream, simply swap the whiskey for my Homemade Irish Cream.
