Another day, another day dedicated to alcohol.
Like we have done before, we will try out a “new” alcoholic drink to broaden our horizons and find out what we need to do to make alcohol actually taste good.
As I have mentioned before, I am not really an alcohol drinker, and it has to taste GOOD for me to want to both put energy into making it but also to drink it.
Coffee is a thing that I have been experimenting with recently; with (whipped)cream, syrups, and peppermint. But alcohol; not so often.
So without further ado (except telling you that you can actually watch this on my YouTube channel), let’s get into how you make an Irish Coffee.
Time used: 10 minutes
- 2,5 DL coffee
- 0,4 DL whisky (I use Tullamore Dew)
- 1 TBSP brown sugar
- Whipped cream for the top – lightly whisked
- Start by making coffee – sometimes I just make one whole can of coffee and either drink too many Irish coffee (or drink them with someone) or simply drink the rest of the coffee alone.
- Whip the cream lightly.
- Put the brown sugar in the bottom of the cup.
- Pour over the coffee and stir until the sugar starts to dissolve.
- Pour whiskey in.
- Top off with your whipped cream.
his is the recipe I usually use, though I normally never put in actual measures.
If you want the danish version (the one I usually use) on how to make Irish Coffee; here you go: 1 skefuld brun farin, fyld med kaffe, et skvæt whisky og fløde på toppen.
Gently translated to: 1 spoonful brown sugar, fill with coffee, dash of whiskey and cream on top.
So if you do not want to use the actual recipe going for the version above is also viable.
I like Irish coffee. The coffee and whiskey gives quite a kick while the sugar and cream calms the drink down. It feels like just the right balance.
I don’t really drink Irish coffee that often, but sometimes I crave it – and then it is good to have the recipe on hand 😊
What do you think about Irish Coffee??
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
