Enjoy the classic Irish Coffee, made with Irish whiskey, hot coffee, simple syrup, and whipped cream. The drink is topped off with freshly grated nutmeg and the end result is a creamy coffee cocktail that puts boring spiked coffee drinks to shame. Enjoy it as an after-dinner treat or anytime of day you need a pick-me-up. The warm drink is especially perfect for chillier nights.


  • 2 oz. whiskey (Irish)
  • 4 oz. coffee (warm)
  • 0.5 oz. simple syrup
  • Garnish: whipped cream (fresh)
  • Garnish: nutmeg (fresh grated)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the simple syrup and whiskey into a mug and add coffee.

  3. Fill a shaker with the cream and shake vigorously until it’s whipped and foamy. This step is important to get a layered look.

  4. Carefully top off the coffee mixture with the frothy cream.

  5. Using a grater or microplane, top off the drink with fresh nutmeg.
