Traditional Irish Coffee

This classic recipe for Irish coffee comes direct from Limerick, Ireland, where it was created by Chef Joe Sheridan in 1942 in an airport terminal that passengers passed through on their way to and from North America.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 6 ounces freshly brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons Irish whiskey
  • Lightly whipped heavy cream
What To Do:
  1. Place brown sugar in a coffee mug or heat-proof glass. Fill mug 3/4-full with hot coffee; stir well to melt sugar. Stir in whiskey.
     
  2. Carefully pour the cream over coffee so it floats on top. (See Note)
     

NOTES:

 

  • Do not stir after adding cream, as the true flavor is obtained by drinking the hot coffee and Irish whiskey through the cream.
     
  • For an extra special treat, put out a plate of our Leprechaun Bites!
