Not everyone likes to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a huge mug of green beer!
So here is a classic recipe for those folks who want to celebrate with something Irish but different…
Classic Irish-Coffee Recipe:
16 oz. of hot water
2 tsp. of light brown sugar
2 oz. of Irish whiskey
1 cup of brewed coffee
1/2 cup of heavy cream for topping
Chocolate shavings, for garnish
What To Do:
Fill two mugs with hot water and let them sit for two minutes (to heat them up).
Pour out the water and add 1 teaspoon of light brown sugar to each of the mugs.
Pour hot coffee over the sugar and stir to dissolve sugar, then pour in the Irish Whiskey (we like Jameson but any kind will do).
In a separate bowl use an electric mixer or by hand, whisk cream until there are soft peaks formed.
The cream should be thick but still be pourable. Top the coffee with cream by gently pouring it over the back of a warm spoon forming a thick layer on top of the coffee. Finally garnish your creation with some chocolate shavings.
