Fat, sugar caffeine and alcohol. Irish coffee is nature's perfect food.
Amen. Visited the place where it was invented and learned to make it correctly. Hard to get proper Irish coffee in the USA.

What? Amen? Irish Coffee? Only had it about twice in my life time, Okish I suppose. Not that I'm partial to alcohol. Send the recipe Mr WPRESTO!

ORIGINAL IRISH COFFEE RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS
A SMALL GLASS MUG INTENDED FOR IRISH COFFEE
SOME BOILING HOT WATER
4 OZ FRESH BREWED BLACK COFFEE
1.5 OZ (ONE JIGGER) IRISH LIQUOR*, WELL WARMED
ONE TABLESPOON BROWN SUGAR
HEAVY CREAM LIGHTLY WHIPPED
(NOT TO THICKNESS OF DESSERT-STYLE WHIPPED CREAM - SHOULD BE POURABLE)

1. POUR BOILING WATER INTO MUG AND SWIRL TO WARM MUG, POUR OUT WATER
2. POUR COFFEE AND LIQUOR INTO MUG, ADD BROWN SUGAR, MIX WELL (LIQUOR MAY BE ADDED AFTER DISSOLVING BROWN SUGAR IN HOT COFFEE)
3. ADD THICKENED CREAM SLOWLY BY POURING OVER THE BACK OF A SPOON HELD JUST OVER THE COFFEE, GRADUALLY BUILDING UP A LAYER UP TO THE RIM OF THE MUG.

ENJOY BY SIPPING SLOWLY. The point is to sip coffee through & with the cream layer.

• JAMESON’S WAS FAVORED.

There are many variation that are disparaged by the people at Foynes, County Limerick where the “modern” version of Irish coffee was invented. Especially they despise the American bartender standard of 1. Not warming the mug; 2. Using white instead of brown sugar; 3. Using whipped cream from a pressurized dispenser instead of layering thickened cream carefully atop. Whipped cream floats as a blob so you cannot sip through it. It tends to be consumed separately, or mixed and blended into the coffee like normally creamed coffee, both of which purists regard as wrong for true Irish coffee.

Some variations may be worth trying, for example, substituting warmed Bailey’s Irish Cream for the brown sugar (in addition to the Jameson’s), but if this is tried, it may be necessary to use whipped cream as the thickened cream may not float properly.
