Irish Coffee



8 cups of coffee, freshly brewed

1/2 pint heavy whipping cream

1 cup (8 ounces) Irish cream liqueur, such as Bailey’s

1 cup (8 ounces) Irish whiskey


1. While coffee is brewing, place heavy cream in a mixing bowl and whip with electric beaters until cream forms peaks. Pulse beaters on and off as cream thickens into whipped cream to avoid turning it into butter. Reserve.

2. Into 8 coffee mugs, place 1 ounce of Irish cream liqueur and 1 ounce of Irish whiskey. Pour 1 cup of coffee into each mug and stir until combined. Top with spoonfuls of whipped cream and serve immediately.
