Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and
for a talk beside the fire: it is time for home. --Edith Sitwell
Traditional Irish Coffee
2 ounces Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon sugar
4 -5 ounces hot coffee
soft whipped cream
Place whiskey and sugar in a warm coffee mug. Stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Pour hot coffee into the mug, the layer a dollop of soft whipped cream on top.
You can adjust the amount of sugar to your liking. To make soft whipped cream yourself, take heavy cream and whip it just until it thickens. You do not want to whip the cream to the point where it forms peaks.
