|step 1: add whiskey to coffee|
I'm not a big whiskey fan, but a well made Irish coffee is delicious. That said, a poorly made Irish coffee is almost undrinkable (unless you really like whiskey). That's why you should make it yourself!
I was taught how to make these by one of my coworkers last week, and there is a little bit of skill involved.
|Step 2 : Add brown sugar|
1 cup of coffee
1 shot of Irish whiskey--you can put more or less depending on how potent you want it.
1 Tbsp brown sugar--once again, more or less but at least 1tsp
|Step 3: Float the cream|
Pour your hot coffee into the mug. Mix in the sugar and whiskey. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. You must add the sugar or the cream won't float... I don't know why this is but Cindy told me it was so and the omnipotent power of the internet has confirmed.
Using back of a large spoon, slowly float your cream on top of the coffee. Drink your coffee through the cream.
