Irish coffee

Original Irish Coffee

Perfect at the end of a meal, or to wrap your hands around when you’re outside as evening cools down, the best Irish coffee uses proper coffee (not instant!), and really good Irish whiskey. If you’re up for whipping cream, add an extra splash of whiskey as you whip – otherwise the squirty stuff is great!



  • 2 cups fresh hot coffee
  • 2 tablespoons raw or brown sugar
  • 90ml Irish whiskey
  • Whipped cream or spray whip


  1. Fill your heatproof glasses with hot water to warm them up, then empty.

  2. Pour fresh hot coffee into each glass until it’s about ¾ full.

  3. Add brown sugar and stir to dissolve.

  4. Add the Irish whiskey, then top with a squirt of whipped cream. Serve piping hot.
