Vegan Irish Coffee

The old joke goes “only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.” At least this version has no cholesterol.

Serves 2

What You Need:

  • 3 ounces Irish whiskey
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 12 ounces hot coffee
  • Soy creamer, chilled

What You Do:

  1. Warm two clear glass mugs by running them under hot water. Pour 1 1/2 ounces of whiskey and 1 teaspoon of sugar into each mug. Pour in hot coffee, leaving enough room at the top of the mug to add a thin "collar" of soy creamer.
  2. Stir the coffee to dissolve the sugar, then, holding a tablespoon upside down over each mug, carefully pour a layer of cold soy creamer on top of the coffee. Do not stir.
