A mug of your favorite hot coffee mixed with Irish whiskey and brown sugar and topped with a dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with nutmeg (or cinnamon), make this classic Irish Coffee recipe a deliciously smooth and creamy treat!
In a large bowl, blend 1 pint of heavy whipping cream with a hand mixer or immersion blender until it doubles in size and changes texture. Then, drizzle maple syrup into the bowl and continue blending until the mixture is light and fluffy. Set aside.
Irish Coffee Instructions
Preheat the nug by filling with hot water, then empty.
Immediately add the freshly-brewed, piping hot coffee into the warmed glass until it is about 3/4 full.
Add the brown sugar* and stir until completely dissolved, then blend in Irish whiskey.
Top with the whipped heavy cream by slowly pouring it over the back of a spoon.
*or substitute 1 to 2 teaspoons (to taste) of maple syrup instead of brown sugar
