Notes

  1. You need to use an Irish Whiskey, preferably Jameson or Bushmills.
  2. If you prefer sweeter Irish Coffees made with Irish Cream, simply swap the whiskey for my Homemade Irish Cream.
  3. 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.
  4. We use the water to preheat the glass to keep the drink hotter longer.
  5. This recipe is generally served in Glass Mugs, usually taller mugs with a handle.
