In a proper world, this drink is called an Irish coffee but to me it will always be a George’s Mug. I can’t have it without seeing his happy brown face. We’d sit on the chesterfield sipping a mug of this fierce drink watching the tele with a blanket over our legs to keep the brisk cold air of an English evening at bay.
1 shot of whiskey
Strong hot coffee
A large Dollop of Whipped Unsweetened Whipping Cream
A sprinkle of cinnamon
Pour a shot of whiskey into a mug, add coffee, adorn with a dollop OR two of whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Variations; Substitute hot chocolate for coffee.
***If you want a sugared rim, dip your mug in a shallow dish of water, then dip in a saucer of sugar.
