The snuggle is real! Use a dark roasted decaf coffee for your cocktail if caffeine keeps you up.

Ingredients (serves 1)
4 oz strong, hot coffee
2 oz vomFASS Irish Whiskey Liqueur
1 oz heavy cream, lightly whipped

Vigorously whip heavy whipping cream with a whisk or fork until it is light and fluffy.
In a warmed Irish Coffee Glass or mug, add coffee and vomFASS Irish Whiskey Liqueur.
Float the lightly whipped heavy cream on top of the coffee by slowly pouring it over the back of a spoon.
Do not stir.
Instead, drink the Irish coffee through the cream.

Start with a great cup of coffee and a great whiskey. (Both are hugely important as anything less will result in a less enjoyable Irish Coffee experience.) To really experience an authentic Irish coffee, you want a rich, strong coffee. Try using a French press or pour-over brewer and high-end, freshly ground beans. Medium- to dark-roasted coffee works best.
Use freshly whipped cream. Avoid the pressurized cans of cream or whipped topping as those will ruin the Irish coffee.
