Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

This is a great drink to wind down your holiday parties. Or to warm up a winter night.

Irish Coffee

  • 6 ounces hot coffee
  • 1-2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 shot of Irish whiskey
  • 1-2 tablespoons whipping cream
  1. Place the sugar in the bottom of a mug. Add the coffee and stir till sugar dissolves. Stir in the whiskey.
  2. 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.

Serves 1

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.

  1. Yum! Looks great! And I love that mug!

  2. Looks yummy, however Jameson Whiskey is made from barley so could be a potential problem for gluten interolant people. That’s what a barteneder told me anyway. Just sub a different brand.

    • There is some debate about whether all whiskeys are safe or not. It seems generally believed that the distillation process removes any traces of gluten. However, not everyone agrees with this, and some people still might have reactions. (But some people, for instance Mike, don’t.) People are going to have to know themselves and what they can/will tolerate.

  3. Irish coffee says CHristmas morning to me. I never grew up with my parents drinking it of course but somehow it’s entered in my adult life and I’m happy it did. Yummy!

  4. Hi Kalinda,
    What a lovely cup of coffee to leave out for Santa. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen
