Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a Canadian-ified version of the classic Irish coffee cocktail. This twist is spiked with our patriotic Canadian whisky and a drizzle of maple syrup then topped with maple-laced whipped cream, of course.
Canadian-Style Irish Coffee
Total Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 cocktail
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp maple syrup
2 oz Canadian whisky
1 dash Angostura aromatic bitters, optional
4 to 6 oz hot strong coffee, preferably good-quality
1. Using a whisk, electric mixer or stand mixer, whisk whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Whisk in 2 Tbsp maple syrup. Set aside. If making ahead, whipped cream will keep well, covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
2. Add whisky, maple syrup and bitters to a heat-proofed mug. Pour in coffee. Top with a dollop of the maple whipped cream.
