– 4 oz hot coffee
– 2 oz Irish whiskey
– 2 oz heavy cream
– 1 tsp dark brown sugar or demerara syrup

1. Heat treat the glass with hot water. This is simply adding hot water to the cocktail glass so that it does not leach heat from the cocktail.
2. Prepare your hot coffee.
3. Whip some heavy cream so that it begins to thicken – to the point where it can stay as a drop on your finger. We don’t want whipped cream, but we also dont want straight cream – we want somewhere in between.
4. Empty the hot water from the glass.
5. Add the sugar or syrup to the glass and add about an ounce of hot coffee. Then, using a bar spoon, stir until the sugar has dissolved into the coffee.
6. Add the whiskey.
7. Continue to add coffee until you have a gap about an 1/2.5 cm from the top, stirring as you go.
8. Add the cream to the top by means of a squeeze bottle, or by pouring it over the back of a spoon so that it slowly pours into the top of the cocktail.
9. Serve and enjoy!
