This is a great drink to wind down your holiday parties. Or to warm up a winter night.
- 6 ounces hot coffee
- 1-2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 shot of Irish whiskey
- 1-2 tablespoons whipping cream
- Place the sugar in the bottom of a mug. Add the coffee and stir till sugar dissolves. Stir in the whiskey.
- Shake the whipping cream in the carton. Hold the back of a spoon over the coffee. Pour the cream onto the spoon so that it lightly drips into the coffee. Serve.
I generally don’t really measure what I’m pouring into the mug. This is just to give you an idea of the proportions.
The cream bit is the hard part. Shaking the cream incorporates some air into it to make it lighter. Sometimes I do a good job with the pouring. Other times I do not. Either way, it still tastes good.
