Irish Coffee

Irish coffee is a classic cocktail that combines coffee, whiskey, sugar, and cream. It's the perfect drink for cold winter days or as a warm pick-me-up after dinner. This recipe is easy to make and perfect for those who love a good whiskey cocktail.

When I was studying abroad in Ireland, I had my first taste of Irish coffee at a local pub. It was a cold and rainy day, and I was looking for something warm to drink. The bartender recommended an Irish coffee, and I was hooked from the first sip. Since then, I've been making this recipe at home whenever I need a little pick-me-up.

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
