David's Recipe for Irish Coffee

Good as the culmination of a festive meal, or by itself as a liquid snack.

Beverage, Irish

  • 2 cups strong coffee prepared by your favorite method
  • 2 jiggers Irish whiskey
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • sugar (optional)
  • low fat milk (optional)
  1. Pour the coffee into large cups. If you add milk and sugar, add less than you usually do.
  2. Add a jigger of whiskey to each cup.
  3. Whip the cream without sugar or other additives. Place it gently on top of the coffee in each cup.
  4. This coffee is also good with brandy instead of whiskey, or without any spirits at all.
