Excellent Irish Coffee

 

Irish Coffee is a good drink to serve on St. Patrick’s Day!  I like to serve it in glass stemmed mugs with handles.

 

 

Boiling water to rinse glasses
1
teaspoon granulated sugar
1
ounce (2 tablespoons) Irish whiskey
  Hot coffee
Softly whipped heavy cream

 

 

Heat a heavy stemmed glass with boiling water, pour out.  Combine sugar and whiskey in glass; stir in coffee to within 1 inch of top.  Pour whipped cream over back of spoon onto coffee.  Serve without stirring.  Makes one serving.
