Enjoy this delicious Classic Irish Coffee Recipe on a cool evening, or a special gathering. We like to drink Irish Coffees during the Holidays, and when we are inside on a snowy day. This is the original Irish Coffee recipe from the Buena Vista Cafe.
Fill an Irish Coffee glass mug with hot water, and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then dump out the water.
Add the hot coffee and sugar cubes, and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add the whiskey and stir.
Top with about an inch of lightly whipped cream. (pour it over the back of a spoon that is over the glass to get a nice collar/layer).
Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg on top for a little extra spiciness (optional).
*I also enjoy making Irish Coffee with brown sugar, as it has a warm flavor.
