Traditional version

1 oz. Irish Whiskey 
3 sugar cubes
whipped cream for garnish 

Recipe Makes 1 Drink 
In order to make this recipe properly the whiskey has to be heated to a high 
temperature. Pour the coffee in a cup with the desired number of sugar cubes. 
Then use a spoon turned upside down and pour the HOT whiskey over it so it 
flows down gently. Top it all with the whipped cream.

When served, true Irish Coffee always has three distinct layers. And to be  
safe, you first use a straw and sip (a very small amount as it is HOT) a little 
of the Whiskey. Then stir all the ingredients together.
