The Best Irish Coffee Recipe

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here is a recipe for the Best Irish Coffee from Cookie and Kate.


  • 1 ½ ounces Irish whiskey (that’s 3 tablespoons/I used Jameson)

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons maple syrup, to taste

  • 6 ounces hot freshly brewed coffee (that’s ¾ cup/use your favorite roast)

  • Whipped cream, for topping

How to Make the Best Irish Coffee

Start by gathering high-quality ingredients, then:

1) Brew your favorite coffee.

I like dark roast best in Irish coffees, personally, but that’s my general preference. Freshly brewed coffee is the way to go!

2) Add Irish whiskey to a mug.

I’m partial to Jameson. It’s the brand we used to make Irish coffees when I was a bartender. Bushmills is a less expensive option.

3) Sweeten with some maple syrup.

Mind you, I like my coffee black in the mornings, but a little sweetener takes the edge off the whiskey. You could use regular sugar or brown sugar instead, but maple syrup tastes better and blends in more easily.

4) Add a splash of coffee.

Gently stir to blend. Then fill the mug with coffee, leaving about 1/2-inch at the top for whipped cream.

5) Top with whipped cream." Real Whipped Cream is best.

Enjoy and may the luck of the Irish be with ya!
