Irish coffee

Don't stir the cream into the coffee, but drink it through the cream and for a change, you can use your favourite liquer instead of whiskey.

Unfortunately we are unable to add this recipe to your favourites, please try again later.


  • a good glug of Irish whiskey
  • 1 tsp brown raw cane sugar
  • 1 heaped tbsp whipped cream
  • hot strong coffee to fill the glass
