The best Irish Coffee recipe ever. Resist the temptation to stir the cream into the coffee. It really must float to enjoy the taste. The Irish Mist cordial liquor is very smooth unlike Irish Whiskey.

  1. Place 1 tbsp brown sugar in bottom of each clear goblet.
  2. Add jigger of Irish Mist to each glass and stir.

Turn the spoon over and place the tip of the spoon against the edge of the glass, pour the cream over the bottom of the spoon so the cream 'flows' across the top of the coffee.
