Irish Coffee

By Your Market District Chefs

Serves: 2
Prep Time: 10 min.


Place a medium metal bowl in the freezer for 5 minutes. Whisk heavy cream in chilled bowl for about 3 minutes, until thickened but not whipped; refrigerate until ready to use. Add equal amounts of coffee, sweetener and whiskey to each, leaving about ½ inch of space for the cream. Stir to mix and slowly pour the thickened cream over the back of a spoon into each cup, creating a layer of cream over the coffee. Garnish each with chopped espresso beans if desired and serve immediately.

Chef's Tip: Irish coffee is best served in sturdy glass mugs with stems. Warm mugs by filling each with hot water. Pre-warmed mugs will help maintain the contrast between the hot coffee and the chilled cream.
