  • 2 cups brewed coffee
  • 2 oz. Irish whiskey
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  2. Fill two glass coffee mugs with hot water and let sit 2-3 minutes. Pour out the water, this is done to make the mugs warm so they maintain the coffee temperature better.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar or Maple syrup to each mug.
  4. Pour over hot coffee and stir to dissolve sugar. Then, pour in whiskey and slightly stir to combine.
  5. Top coffee with cream and garnish with chocolate shavings.
