Irish Coffee Recipe

Posted by Lisa Orcutt on

March is almost gone and I wanted to share this Irish Coffee Recipe with you all.
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Chilling time time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 1 drink

This recipe makes enough brown sugar syrup and whipped cream for several cocktails. Store the extra in the fridge.


  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 ounces freshly brewed strong hot coffee
  • 1 ounce Irish Whiskey, Dark Rum or Kentucky Bourbon (your choice)
  • 5 drops of The Flavor Apprentice Irish Cream flavour drops


Make the brown sugar syrup. Place the brown sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until the brown sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, stir in the 5 flavour drops and allow to cool to room temperature.

Make the whipped cream. Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, or using a hand-held whisk, whisk the cream with 1/4 cup of the cooled brown sugar syrup until it hits the ribbon stage. This is when you lift your whisk and a bit of the thickened cream falls back in a ribbon, keeping its shape for a second or two before dissolving on the surface.

Make your cocktail. Place the coffee and whiskey in an Irish coffee glass, coffee mug, or whatever you have along with 1/2 ounce (15 mL) of the brown sugar syrup. (Use more or less of any of these ingredients according to your taste.) Top with whipped cream and serve.
