How To Make The Perfect Irish Coffee

I have always wondered how you make Irish Coffee; it is not something I have ever tried. So this weekend I decided to give it a go. I can not believe how ridiculously easy it is.

You will need;

Coffee, I used Cherizena Christmas Coffee, A Colombian medium roast coffee infused with Jamaican rum, nuts, citrus and spices.

3 Tablespoons Irish whiskey, I used Wild Geese Irish whiskey, which is lovely with a light sweet and fruity taste.

Double Cream

1 teaspoon of brown sugar.


Firstly pour the coffee and fill the glass about 2/3rd’s full

Mix in the sugar and whiskey

Then pour the cream over the back of a spoon, at first it look’s like it is going to curdle but be patient, in a moment or two it starts to settle and look like an Irish coffee.






Serve with home-made gingerbread biscuits and candy canes. Perfect for a cozy winters afternoon by the log burning stove. Can you believe how easy this is, I can’t wait to impress friends next time they come for dinner by serving amazing after dinner Irish coffee.
