Irish Coffee is a hot drink made with coffee, whiskey and cream. It was created in Ireland in the 1940s, and is still enjoyed by many people around the world today.

Making Irish Coffee is simple and only takes a few minutes. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • 1 cup of hot freshly brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 ounces of whiskey
  • 2 tablespoon of cream


  1. Combine the coffee, sugar, and whiskey in an Irish coffee mug or heat proof glass. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Slowly pour in the cream so that it floats on top.
  3. Serve warm with a spoon for stirring and a whipped cream topping (optional). Enjoy!
