Hot strong black coffee
A good measure of whiskey
1 teaspoonful of brown sugar
Begin by brewing the coffee. Meanwhile pour a little hot water
into a heatproof glass or cup and swirl it around to warm the
glass; then discard the water. Now put a teaspoonful of sugar
into the warm glass. Then put the cream into a small bowl or pitcher
and very lightly whip.
Next pour the hot coffee into the glass until the glass is almost
full – about ½ inch from the top - and stir well
until the sugar has dissolved; then add the whiskey and give the
coffee another stir.
After this very carefully pour the cream over the back of a teaspoon
– so that the cream floats on top of the coffee. Irish coffee
is deliciously warming.
