Irish coffee is a cocktail created in 1940 thanks to a delayed flight of Pan American. Its creator Joe Sheridan wanted to add Irish whiskey to his coffee, because of the cold suffered by passengers. He then presented it as an Irish coffee.
- Irish whiskey 30ml, as Jameson or Bushmills Original.
- 1 cup of coffee
- Brown sugar
- Ground Cinnamon
- Ground coffee for garnish
If you have a coffee machine, heat the cup with the vaporizer. Otherwise you can use hot water, leaving the cup enough for it to take the ideal temperature.
Now mix the whiskey and sugar, pour into a saucepan and heat gently. You must be careful that the sugar is dissolved in whiskey. When this is the case, pour the mixture into the preheated cup.
Place your coffee carefully on top of the whiskey and sugar. Pour slowly over the back of a spoon, or drag on the walls of the cup.
Beat the cream before putting it in the cup to make it fluffy. The goal is not to mix the ingredients. Use the same technique as for coffee. Use the back of a spoon to introduce the cream gently into the cup.
To decorate the Irish coffee, you can sprinkle a little cinnamon on the wet edge of the glass. You can also add ground coffee at your convenience. It depends on personal taste.
