A staple on St. Paddy’s Day, Irish coffee is a cocktail made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey and sugar, and garnished with soft cream.

The cocktail is pretty straightforward, but if you’re looking to wow your guests or have a little more free time on St. Patrick’s Day morning, then there are a few tips (courtesy of Gillian Murphy, bartender and Tullamore DEW Brand Ambassador), to make your Irish Coffee of superior quality.

For starters, Murphy recommends warming your glass before preparing your cocktail. This way, it will stay warm for longer. No need to microwave the glass or anything, just pour hot water into the glass.

The next step is to mix your sugar and coffee in the glass. Sweeten to taste and if you are looking for a low sugar version you can also use a calorie-free sweetener like stevia or monk fruit.

Now the fun part: add the whiskey of your choice! We recommend Tullamore DEW for its spicy and malty notes with nuances of charred wood. Unlike other whiskeys, there is no severe burn with Tullamore DEW – its smooth finish is the perfect complement for this warming coffee.

The final ingredient (and perhaps everyone’s favorite) is the whipped cream filling. And Murphy has a nifty trick: All you need is a protein mixing bottle with a little elastic metal ball that helps you mix your protein powder and liquid. Not everyone has an electric whisk, so this trick makes it easier for you to whip up this cocktail.

To take this cocktail to an impressive level, Murphy explains a classic bartender trick of pouring whipped cream on top of Irish coffee using the back of a hot teaspoon. This helps to keep the cream on top of the coffee rather than mixing it in, as drinking the coffee through a thick but chewy layer of cream is a key feature of this classic Irish drink and really gives the classic phrase “Top” meaning. o ‘the morning to you! “

For 1 person

You will need

1 ½ parts of Tullamore DEW Original
1 ½ part of strongly brewed coffee
½ part sugar
Lightly whipped heavy cream
Cinnamon or nutmeg

How to do it

  1. Preheat a transparent stemmed glass with very hot water. Add sugar and ground coffee and mix well.
  2. Once the sugar has melted, stir in the Tullamore DEW Irish Whiskey.
  3. Gently whip the heavy cream by shaking it in a protein shaker with a mixer ball – you want a consistency that is still a bit loose, not stiff.
  4. Pour the cream over the back of a hot teaspoon to garnish the drink (and prevent the cream from penetrating the top of the drink).
  5. Finally, garnish with grated nutmeg or cinnamon for a spicy finish.
