Irish coffee recipes are in demand by hosts in Ireland and throughout the world. This authentic Irish drink will warm your guests at the end of any meal. Try this on St. Patrick's Day or any other day of the year.
1 ½ ounce Irish Whiskey(Bushmills Distillery is in Northern Ireland)
1 teaspoon brown sugar
6 ounces hot coffee
Heavy cream-whipped until it is thick but does not peak-The cream should be semi-liquid.
First, warm the mug by pouring boiling water into it and letting it sit for a few minutes. Then empty the mug.
Add the whiskey to the mug.
Add the sugar and stir.
Add strong black coffee until the mug is about ¾ full.
Pour the heavy cream slowly over the back of a warm teaspoon just above the coffee level. (A bartender at Bushmills Distillery told me the hint about using a warm teaspoon.)
Do not stir the drink. The coffee should be sipped through the cream on top.
