Try experimenting with this decadent, boozy coffee using different spirits like bourbon, cognac, dark rum or amaretto. It's a great way to round off a dinner party, or can also be incorporated in desserts
- Serves: 1 person
- 50ml Irish whiskey (or use a blended scotch)
- 2tsp brown sugar
- 150-200ml freshly brewed black coffee
- 50-100ml double cream, chilled
- nutmeg, a generous grating
Step 1Fill a heatproof glass with hot water and rinse out. Pour the whiskey into the glass along with the sugar and mix until the sugar has dissolved. Add the coffee and stir.
Step 2Lightly whip the cream until slightly thickened, then very slowly pour the cream over the back of a teaspoon into the glass so that it floats on top of the coffee in a layer. Grate a little nutmeg on top and serve.
