How to Make Authentic Irish Coffee

Step-by-Step

  • 1Use fresh, cold water to make coffee - 2 rounded Tablespoons per 6 oz. cup.
  • 2Fill a 6-8 oz mug with hot water (to warm). In a bowl, whip or broth cream lightly, so it is still pourable.
  • 3Empty water from mug, add hot coffee and sugar, stir to dissolve. Add whiskey, stir. Hold a spoon upside down over mug and slowly pour the cream over the spoon, allowing it to float onto the top of the coffee.
    Do Not stir - drink through the cream.
