We’re gearing up to celebrate all things Irish this weekend, and what better way to get started than with a nice mug of Irish Coffee?
This recipe comes from Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey:
1 ½ parts Tullamore D.E.W. Original
1 ½ parts strongly brewed coffee (Tim’s Pick: any premium dark roast)
½ part sugar (Tim’s Pick: Demerara Sugar)
Lightly whipped heavy cream
Cinnamon or nutmeg
Preheat a clear-stemmed glass with very hot water. Add the sugar and brewed coffee and stir well. Once sugar has melted, stir in the Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey. Gently whip the heavy cream by shaking it in a protein shaker with a blender ball – you want a still somewhat loose, not stiff consistency. Pour the cream over the back of a hot teaspoon to top the drink (and prevent cream from penetrating the top of the drink). Finally, garnish with grated nutmeg or cinnamon for spicy finish.
