Irish Coffee Recipe

Prep time
   2 mins

Try experimenting with this decadent, boozy coffee using different spirits like bourbon, cognac, dark rum or amaretto. It's a great way to round off a dinner party, or just as an indulgent treat.


  • 50ml Irish whiskey (or use a blended scotch)

  • 2 tsp brown sugar

  • 150-200ml freshly brewed black coffee

  • 50-100ml double cream, chilled

  • nutmeg, a generous grating


    1. Fill a glass with hot water and rinse out.

    2. Pour the whiskey into the glass along with the sugar and mix until the sugar has dissolved.

    3. Add the coffee and stir.

    4. Lightly whip the cream until slightly thickened, then very slowly pour the cream over the back of a teaspoon into the glass so that it floats on top of the coffee in a layer.


    5. Grate a little nutmeg on top and serve.
