For all of Santa’s helpers who are staying up late, it’s crucial to stay energized and jolly. Take a page out of the Irish rule book and have yourself a classic Irish Coffee. It’ll provide the perfect amount of holiday cheer to get you through those long gift-wrapping sessions or laborious family dinners.
- 1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 ½ ounces Irish whiskey
Fill a mug with hot water to preheat, then empty. Pour hot coffee into warmed glass until it is about 3/4 full. Add in the brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Blend in Irish whiskey and top with a collar of the whipped heavy cream by pouring gently over back of spoon. Serve hot.
