I have put my own spin on traditional Irish coffee. If you like it sweet and creamy you will love this. Make it with decaf and it becomes a perfect nightcap for your sweet dreams.

Ingredients

Strong hot coffee

1 (1.5 oz.) jigger of Irish Mist Liqueur per glass

1 teaspoon of sugar per glass

Half & half

Whipping cream

Chocolate shavings (if desired)

Whip cream with a little sugar and vanilla to taste. Consistency should not be stiff but still slightly runny.

Mix together coffee, half and half to taste, sugar and a jigger of Irish Mist. Stir well. Fill glasses about ¾ full with the coffee mixture. Pour softly whipped cream over the back of a spoon and into the glass to float on top of the coffee. Top with chocolate shavings, if desired. Sip the coffee through the cream.

Tip: I like to mix the coffee, sugar, half & half and Irish Mist in a measuring cup and then pour into the glasses because I use Waterford Crystal wine goblets for serving the coffee in. However, if your glasses are not so pricey you can make the coffee directly in the glasses.

Sláinte!

    That sounds delicious! I was just sending someone my recipe for an “Irish Kiss”, another yummy, hot drink using Irish Mist.
