Directions for: Canadian-Style Irish Coffee


½ cup whipping cream

2 Tbsp + 1 tsp maple syrup

2 oz Canadian whisky

1 dash Angostura aromatic bitters, optional

4 - 6 oz hot strong coffee, preferably good-quality


1. Using a whisk, electric mixer or stand mixer, whisk whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Whisk in 2 Tbsp maple syrup. Set aside. If making ahead, whipped cream will keep well, covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

2. Add whisky, maple syrup and bitters to a heat-proofed mug. Pour in coffee. Top with a dollop of the maple whipped cream.
