Irish Coffee they say was invented by a Chef in 1940s to welcome Americans visiting Ireland. The travellers arrived Ireland on a cold winter night, so the Chef added whiskey to their coffee to warm them up. Hence, Irish Coffee was born. (Authenticity of this story can be questioned, however).
Irish Coffee is a cocktail consisting of Irish whiskey, hot coffee, brown sugar and thick cream. I love it with a dash of nutmeg powder sprinkled on the thick cream. Canned cream can be easily used for this recipe.
- 1 Cup Freshly Brewed Hot Coffee
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 Jigger Irish Whiskey (1 ½ ounces or 3 tablespoon)
- Heavy Cream, Slightly Whipped
Fill your footed mug or a mug with hot water to preheat it, then empty. It is very important to do, so that the coffee remains at the right temperature for a longer time. Pour piping hot coffee into warmed mug until it is a quarter full. Add the brown sugar and stir. Blend in Irish whiskey. Top with a collar of the whipped heavy cream by pouring gently over the back of a spoon. Serve hot.
This recipe tastes very nice after brunch on a cool “fall/ autumn” afternoon.
