This is such a treat for a cold evening after putting the kids to bed and curling up with a good book. I like mine made with decaf so that I can still easily fall asleep, but you can make it with regular coffee which would be perfect for serving at a Christmas Brunch. Note, pairs well with chocolate chip cookies!
1 tsp instant coffee (decaf or regular)
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
8 oz boiling water
2 Tbsp Irish Whiskey
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp ground cinnamon
To make the thickened cream, pour 2 cups cold, heavy cream in a stand mixer and use whisk attachment to whip on medium-high until cream thickens up, but don’t let it for peaks. This will take about 2 minutes. Add in 1 tsp cinnamon and whip for just 1 minute more. Cream will keep well for a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
In a 12 oz coffee mug, put in instant coffee, both sugars, and 8oz of boiling water. Stir well.
Add in 2 Tbsp Irish Whiskey and give a slight stir.
Top with 2 Tbsp thickened cinnamon cream and let it settle on top.
Pairs wonderfully with cookies and a good book
