Irish Coffee

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style with a traditional finish, using our easy recipe for Irish Coffee. Piping hot and served in a glass mug, it's like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Don't be surprised if you find leprechauns lurking about. 

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 8 min
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 6 cups hot black coffee
  • 3/4 cup Irish whisky
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat the cream and 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff peaks form.
     
  2. Dissolve remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in coffee and pour into 6 mugs. Stir an equal amount of whisky into each mug and top with whipped cream (see Note). Serve immediately.
     
 NOTE: Do not stir after adding cream, as the true flavor is obtained by drinking the hot coffee and Irish whiskey through the cream.
