Making really good Irish coffee at home is possible.
Irish coffee is traditionally made by combining coffee, brown sugar, Irish whiskey and whipped cream. Deliciousness. Let’s start:
IRISH COFFEE RECIPE
1 cup freshly brewed coffee
1 1/2 oz Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
lightly whipped cream
While the coffee is brewing, preheat the glass with hot water. Discard the water. Place 1 tbsp brown sugar into a glass and add coffee. Stir until completely dissolved. Pour in 1 shot whiskey. To finish, slowly pour lightly whipped cream over the back of a spoon to make a top layer. Do not stir. Serve hot.
Options?! I often reach for Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur. You can also use Irish cream coffee creamer and make it alcohol-free.
