Irish Coffee

Contrary to popular belief, the Irish Coffee was invented in Ireland in the 1930’s and not in the USA as is popularly believed. Who could improve on a recipe like this?

Irish Coffee

Serves: 1

25ml/1fl oz Irish Whiskey

1 tsp brown raw cane sugar

1-heaped tbsp whipped pouring cream

1 hot double espresso with a small measure of hot water to fill the glass

Method

Use warmed coffee glasses and add the whiskey.

Add the sugar and dissolve in the whiskey.

Add the coffee and stir well.

Whip the cream lightly but still able to pour.

The lightly whipped cream is carefully poured over the back of a spoon initially held just above the surface of the coffee and gradually raised a little as you pour, the cream should float on top. 

Serve and enjoy, this all Irish Classic.
