The Irish Coffee is somewhat different to a stereotypical cocktail. The drink is served hot, made with freshly brewed coffee and is topped with thick cream. For the coffee, we recommend taking a look at our friends over at Pact coffee who will be sure to sort you out—save £3 on your first bag too!

What you need to make the Irish Coffee

For the drink
  • 40 ml Irish whiskey
  • 80 ml hot coffee
  • 30 ml fresh cream
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

How to make

  1. Heat the coffee, whiskey and the sugar.
  2. Pour the heated mix into an Irish coffee mug.
  3. Top with the cream, this should settle and create thick layer on top.
