ORIGINAL IRISH COFFEE
The original recipe for Irish Coffee.
Into a stemmed glass, put 2 tsp. of Sugar, preferably brown.
Add 1/3 Irish Whiskey
Add 2/3 really hot, really strong Coffee, preferably freshly brewed, not instant.
The glass should be filled with this mixture to within 1/2 inch (1 cm) of the brim.
Stir well at this point to ensure all the sugar is dissolved.
Carefully float over the back of a spoon a collar of Lightly Whipped Cream, so that the cream floats on the top of the coffee and the whiskey.
Do not stir any more.
Serve the drink without a spoon or a straw, as part of the pleasure comes from sipping the hot coffee and whiskey through the cool cream.
