Pouring Whiskey into coffee didn’t begin in Ireland. Rather coffee with whiskey, brandy and other alcohols began in Europe hundreds of years ago.

It jumped over to the Isle of Ireland at some point this last century and made a name for itself.

There are several stories of how the Classic Irish coffee was originally created. The classic recipe has been around since the 1950s.

Irish Coffee Ingredients:

You can choose your favorite Irish whiskey. We used triple distilled Jamesons. It’s easy on the pocket book, widely available and makes great Irish coffee.

Also try Paddy Whiskey or Knappogue Castle brand whiskey. The green Tullamore Dew offers a softer sweeter whiskey in Irish cream coffee.

What is your favorite?

Recipe Ingredients List:

  • Irish Whiskey
  • Hot coffee- We use french roast beans-medium grind
  • brown sugar
  • lightly whipped heavy cream

The Cream on top:

I’ve seen MANY different ways to finish this drink. Our method gives you that drinkable thickened cream in the mouth in a nice smooth stream with your whiskied coffee.

Rather than a stiffer blob of canned whipped cream topping that will try to go down your throat in one gulp.

I enjoyed sipping my coffee whiskey through a creamy liquid on top. If you choose to use a canned topping with all the trimmings you’ll need a spoon.

Irish coffee mugs:

Jameson Irish Coffee

Our favorite mugs for this drink are this style Irish Style coffee Mugs. They have a nice shape for this recipe.

Maybe you prefer a different style. Just make sure you use heat proof glass mugs. They have a nice handle and are designed to handle the heat.

Here is an entire Amazon page of Irish coffee Mugs . Choose your own favorite style.
