bourbon coffeeINGREDIENTS:

1 cup of hot black coffee

1.5 oz bourbon whiskey

2-3 oz heavy whipping cream

1/4 oz agave nectar

3/4 oz Frangelico or hazelnut liqueur

Garnish: fresh grated nutmeg or cinnamon


  1. Pour water into a small-medium sauce pan and heat until the water is hot. When the water is hot, pour it into an Irish coffee mug or glass coffee mug. This helps to keep the glass hot so that you’re not pouring your hot coffee into a cold/lukewarm mug.
  2. Using a cocktail shaker combine your heavy whipping cream, agave nectar, and hazelnut liqueur (the agave nectar is for a little added sweetness. It’s a matter of preference how sweet you want your whipped cream so feel free to omit). Close the shaker and shake vigorously for 2-3 minutes. After the time, check to see if the whipped cream has a thick consistency. If not close the shaker and shake for another minute or so until fully whipped.
  3. Empty the water from the mug and pour in your bourbon and coffee. Top the bourbon coffee with your hazelnut whipped cream.
  4. Grate a cinnamon stick or nutmeg over the top of the whipped cream for garnish. Enjoy!
