Recipe for the perfect Irish Coffee to enjoy after a meal.

2 Ounces (55 grams) Irish Whiskey
5 – 6 Ounces (140 – 170 grams) Black Coffee
2 Cocktail Sugar Cubes
Heavy Cream

How to
Fill your serving glass with very hot water (to warm the glass), then discard the water.

Pour coffee into warm glass and add sugar cubes. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour whiskey into glass.

Top with lightly whipped heavy cream by gently pouring it over the back of a spoon which is held slightly above the coffee.


Note to new Irish coffee drinkers: You sip the coffee through the layer of cream, you don’t stir this up.
