  • One milk frother


  • 2 cubes raw sugar
  • 6 ounces brewed coffee
  • 1 ounce Irish Whiskey
  • 2 tbsp frothed whipping cream


  • Use a milk frother and whip the cream until lightly frothed and foamy, but not firm. This will take about a minute to a minute and a half.
  • The first step in making the perfect Irish Coffee is to heat up the cup. Fill cup with hot water, let sit for a few seconds allowing cup to get hot. Pour out water.
  • Next place 2 raw sugar cubes into the warm cup. One cube of sugar is equal to one teaspoon. If you don't have cubes you can use 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Pour in hot brewed coffee until the cup is ¾ full. Give the cup a stir, allowing sugar to dissolve.
  • Add one ounce of Irish Whiskey.
  • Gently pour frothed whipped cream over the top of a spoon. Allowing cream to spill over the edges. This will allow the cream float on top of the coffee.
