Irish Coffee

12 cl
A brewed drink prepared from the grinds of roasted coffee plant seeds. Coffee is a fruit!
50 ml
In gaelic, uisce betha, or 'water of life' was used to describe such drinks in the Middle Ages. This malted grain whiskey must be produced on the island of Ireland.
1 tsp
A granulated sucrose product (1/2 glucose to 1/2 fructose) made from molasses. What makes mom's chocolate chip cookies taste so dang good (and butter) (and love).
50 ml
The butterfat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenization, contains more than 35% milk fat. Also called single/double cream and whipping cream, although these may also add thickening agents making them less useful for mixing in cocktails. This is used as a foaming agent and for fat-washing in cocktails.

Heat the coffee, whiskey and sugar; do not boil. Pour into glass and top with cream by gently pouring over the back of a spoon hovered over the top of the drink; serve hot. #hot #straight

Espresso can be used as well as drip coffee. Adding scotch whisky turns this into a Highland coffee, also known as Gaelic coffee or Cup o' Evening.
