  • 12 oz strong black hot coffee divided
  • 3 oz Irish whiskey (I use Jameson's) divided
  • 2-3 tsp brown sugar divided
  • 1 1/2 oz Baileys Irish Cream divided


  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp Baileys Irish Cream


  • Fill two mugs with hot water and let stand 1-2 minutes.  Dump out water and fill mugs with 6 oz each of hot coffee.  Stir in 1 1/2 oz whiskey in each mug,  and 1-3 tsp brown sugar in each mug, until sugar is dissolved. 
  • Pour half of Irish cream into each mug and stir to combine.
  • Top with whipped cream and enjoy!


  • Add whipping cream and Baileys to a chilled bowl.  Beat with a handheld mixer for 1-2 minutes, until desired consistency is achieved.  
  • For a loose, frothy layer of cream, beat until whipping cream is frothy and spoonable.  For stiffer whipped cream, beat until cream has medium to stiff peaks forming.
