Irish Coffee Recipe

Irish Coffee is a very popular coffee cocktail. A lot of people orders it at bars, but find it tricky to make at home. With our clear and simple recipe below, anyone can make a good Irish Coffee at home!



  1. Start by brewing really good coffee.
  2. At the same time as you brew the coffee, boil water and pour into the glass to preheat it.
  3. Also prepare the cream in advance. It should be lightly whipped.
  4. Discard the water in the glass.
  5. Add whiskey. The amount of whiskey can be adjusted to taste. Somewhere around 40-60 ml is usually reasonable.
  6. Add sugar. Preferably a brown sugar such as raw cane sugar or demerara sugar.
  7. Add coffee (about 3/4 of a normal-sized glass) and stir.
  8. Pour the cream carefully so that it floats on top of the drink.
  9. Garnish with some whole coffee beans or by sprinkling brown sugar on the cream.
