Bartender/Chef Sheridan's Original Irish Coffee
1 serving
1 shot of Irish whiskey
3 white sugar cubes
Strong black coffee
Heavy cream

  1. Heat up a stemmed whiskey goblet.
  2. Pour in 1 shot of Irish whiskey.
  3. Drop in 3 white sugar cubes.
  4. Fill with the coffee to within 1-inch of the top of the goblet; stir gently.
  5. Pouring it over the back of a spoon, gently add heavy cream to fill the goblet, floating it on top of the coffee (this takes a bit of practice).
  6. Do not stir. The full flavor as intended is achieved by sipping this drink through the cream.

  1. Here’s to me, and here’s to you,
    And here’s to love and laughter –
    I’ll be true as long as you,
    And not one moment after.
