Why not try Becca’s perfect Irish Coffee…
Preheat a tall glass mug with hot water.
Empty the water and put 3 brown sugar cubes or 4 teaspoons of brown sugar into the glass.
Add a 50ml shot of Jameson’s Whiskey and allow the sugar to soak up the whiskey.
Pull a fresh double shot of espresso (you can cheat with strong filter coffee) and pour slowly into the glass.
Add a little hot water and stir until all the sugar has dissolved.
Top up with hot water as needed. Stir again.
Take double cream and a teaspoon. Holding the teaspoon a centimetre from the top of the coffee, pour the double cream very slowly on to the centre of the spoon. This will then slowly trickle into the glass and will settle on top of the coffee. You want about a cm of cream.
The perfect Irish coffee will have a very clear black and white line with the coffee and cream not mixing. Add a coffee bean to the top to garnish.
