We got famed New York bar The Dead Rabbit to share its recipe for delicious hot Irish Coffee.
- 3/4 oz Demerara syrup (one part demerara sugar, one part water)
- 1 1/2 oz Clontarf Irish whiskey
- 4 oz Brewed coffee, hot
- Heavy cream, lightly whipped
- Garnish: Nutmeg
Fill an Irish Coffee glass with hot water and let stand for a few minutes to warm.
Pour out the water and add the Demerara syrup, whiskey and coffee.
Stir to combine and top with a layer of heavy cream the width of your thumb.
Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
