How do you make an Irish Coffee?!

Question: How do you make an Irish Coffee!?
I really need to know!. ThanksWww@FoodAQ@Com

Good strong coffee into a special glass, sugar and stir then pour cream down the back of a spoon which is touching the top of the coffee!. The whirlpool effect of stirring will take the cream around the top!. It needs sugar though because the cream will sink otherwise!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


Half a cup of good quality coffee
1 measure of Irish whiskey
2 Spoonfuls of brown sugar
20ml of fresh pouring cream

Put a tea spoon into the glass (best to use a glass with a stem) and pour some boiling water into the glass to warn it up!. (the reason you put in the spoon is so that the spoon takes the heat from the water and so the glass will not crack, but be careful!)!.

Pour the shot of whiskey into the glass!.

Pour in the coffee up to within 15mm (1!.5cm) from the top!.

Put in the two spoons of sugar and stir until all the sugar has dissolved!.You will see if the sugar has dissolved by looking at the base of the glass!. (the sugar ensures that the cream will float)!.

Place the spoon onto the rim of coffee, face up (ensure that the curved part of the spoon is touching the coffee, touching!.!.!.not submerged) With the cream in a small jug pour it onto the spoon!. The cream will flow over the edge of the spoon and rest on top of the coffee!.

What you should be left with is a glass of black coffee (not cloudy and with no trace of cream) with a white collar about 10mm (1cm) deep!.

It should then be served on a sideplate with NO SPOON!.

If you are making a Speciality coffee with a liqeuer such as Tia Maria or Baileys, follow the same steps, just remember that no sugar is required as the liqeuer contains sufficient sugar to keep the cream afloat!.

A hint or tip: If you whip the cream slightly, it is easier to create the effect (but don't tell anyone you did this)!. Irish people do not use whipped cream, or heaven forbid the squirty cream - a sin in food & beverage circles!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

You need (for two people)

2 cups of hot coffee
Brown sugar
1oz whisky
a jug of hot water to heat the glass

Whisk the cream
Heat the glass (so it does not crack when coffee is added)
1 tsp of brown sugar
the whisky
the coffee
into the heated glass
leaving room at the top for the cream
spoon on some cream do not stir leave it to float

The best way to make a good Irish coffee:
4oz!. of good coffee
2 1/2oz of Jameson Irish Whiskey
1oz of Dark creme da cacao
make a bowl of fresh whipped cream / as you are whipping lace a little bit of Grand Marnier/ then take your glass and wet the rim w little bit of whiskey and dip into some cinnamon sugar!. It's great on a cold day!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

This will be the best Irish Coffee!.

Brew some delicious coffee!. Add a shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey and a shot of Bailey's!. If you're feeling adventurous you can use the mint flavored Bailey's!. Add whipped cream on the top and drizzle with a little Tia Maria!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Teaspoon brown sugar in glass, tot of whisky and pour in coffee!. Pour double cream slowly over back of teaspoon onto surface of liquid!. Single cream and Elmlea does not work!. Alternatively, you could use squirty cream and serve immediately!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

As some have said, add Irish whiskey!.
Note the spelling!
Some get it wrong!.
Don't ever refer to Irish as whisky: that's Scotch!.
Irish has an 'e' -- whiskEy!.
This is very important, especially if you're Irish!.
So watch it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
