Regular coffee doesn’t do the job of shaking you up in the morning? Then why not try giving it a little boost with a shot of whiskey and making it Irish?

Irish coffee is a popular beverage that combines two things that you would think shouldn’t be combined; coffee and whiskey. However, it turns out they go great hand in hand, mixing to create a perfect beverage for all occasions. If you don’t believe us, make it yourself using the recipe below.


  • 1 cup of hot coffee (freshly brewed)
  • 1 shot of whiskey (1.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Whipped cream


  1. Make a cup of your preferred coffee. The best choice here is filter coffee as it won’t overpower whiskey.
  2. Pour some hot water into your coffee mug to warm it up. Discard the water and pour in the coffee until the mug is ¼ away from being full.
  3. Sweeten a tablespoon of brown sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Add a shot of whiskey. You can use any you want, but our recommendation is to stay true to the recipe and opt for an Irish brand like Jameson.
  5. Give it a good stir and top it with whipped cream.
  6. Take a sip and marvel at how good the drink is.
