Total: 1 hour 10 minutes



  • 1cupdark brown sugar
  • 1cupwater
  • 1cupheavy whipping cream

Sugar Syrup:

  1. Place the brown sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  2. Cook until the brown sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Whipped Cream:

  1. Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, or using a hand-held whisk, whisk the cream with ¼ cup of the cooled brown sugar syrup until it hits the ribbon stage.

  2. When lifting the whisk, a bit of the thickened cream falls back in a ribbon, keeping its shape for 1 to 2 seconds before dissolving on the surface.


  1. Place the coffee and whiskey in an Irish coffee glass or desired mug along with ½ ounce of brown sugar syrup. Use more or less of any according to taste.

  2. Top with plenty of the whipped cream and serve. Enjoy!
