Irish coffee makes a wonderful morning starter, but if you're looking for something different, try the Italian version of this cocktail which substitutes amaretto for the whiskey in the Irish recipe.
- 4 ounces freshly brewed coffee
- 1 1/2 ounces amaretto
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
- Whipped cream
- Sugar in the raw (optional)
Pour the coffee, amaretto, and sugar into a glass mug and stir. Top with a generous serving of whipped cream, sprinkle with a little sugar in the raw if you like, and enjoy the decadence.
