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.
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.
