    • 30ml (1 nip) Irish whiskey
    • 250ml (1 cup) hot brewed coffee
    • Whipped cream and ground nutmeg for topping

    1. Combine Irish cream and Irish whiskey in a small jug then pour into individual mugs. Fill mug with coffee. Top with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg.

    Used different ingredients. If you sprinkle the nutmeg just so over the whipped cream, it looks really pretty and it goes down really well!  -  07 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Potent stuff. My husband and I enjoy our alcohol, but this was too much for us. I prefer it with just the Irish cream and passing on the additional whisk(e)y.  -  31 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This is such a perfect winter after-dinner drink. It works well in hot chocolate, too.  -  07 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
