How To Make irish coffee from an irish cailín

  • 1
    Fill the glass you are using with very hot water, leave for 20 seconds so the glass is heated. Empty the water out.
  • 2
    Add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar, now add some coffee, (leave enough room at the top for the cream) and stir. As soon as the sugar is melted, add a generous measure of Irish whiskey ( I use Jameson) stir again, then wait to the brew to still.
  • 3
    Now take a hot teaspoon (stick the spoon in a cup of really hot water for 20 seconds approx ), and pour gently whipped fresh cream slowly over the back of the spoon.

    NOTE = The cream should be "half whipped" i.e. not too stiff and not too liquid. A perfect Irish Coffee should look pretty... much like that other famous Irish drink - Guinness.. (*,*)
