How to make Authentic Irish Coffee

Step one is to brew your coffee, you can have it hot or cold all depends on how you like it. I would recommend using Cold Brew if you are going iced. You can do it two ways, the first is old school cold brewing. That takes about 12 -24 hours to make. Or you can spend a little money and buy a cold brewcoffee maker. And take about 10 to 15 minutes.

Divide the coffee between 4 mugs or just one real large mug for yourself, and top with one part boiling water each. Add a little brown sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add 1 ounce of your finest whiskey and you are all set.

Whip the heavy cream until it is halfway to stiff whipped cream. Spoon about 4 tablespoons of cream on top and serve immediately.

Coffee Tip

Is Regular Coffee better than Espresso

What taste better regular coffee or espresso? For the most part it comes down to personal preference. Sometimes people say it’s all about the level of grind thats the difference between coffee and espresso. You go to any Starbucks and you will see a bag of coffee beans or ground coffee labeled espresso. But it’s not the type of roast or the grind at all. And that what gives the different tastes.

It’s the brewing process is what separates the two! Espresso is made by forcing steam into the ground coffee. Regular coffee is made by pouring water over ground beans in a filter. This process also gives its taste different. Because regular coffee is coarse, it tends to be very robust and bright. Espresso is considered very dark; the bean is very finely ground, almost like a powder, and extremely aromatic. So when it comes down to it, the difference between Regular Coffee and Espresso its all about your personal taste.
