Irish Coffee

First make a carafe of strong coffee.

Per cup:

  • 1 tbs soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbs water

Heat gently in a pan to create a syrup.  Assemble your cup thus:

  • 1 tbs sugar syrup
  • 2 tbs Irish whisky
  • Top up with coffee, leaving room for
  • Double cream, skillfully poured over a spoon so it sits on the surface

Done. That is someone else’s promo photo by the way. Ours looked similar but we forgot to take a picture. Next time.



You can buy smoothie mixes very cheaply – find them in the frozen food section of your supermarket. Buy some, plus apple juice and you are good to go. Alternatively try this. Makes for two:

  • An old banana
  • Glass of orange juice
  • 50-80ml plain yoghurt depending how thick you like it
  • Glass of frozen fruit, e.g strawberries, or half a glass of fresh chopped fruit which will squish down more than frozen

Put all of it in a blender and whizz until smooth. Yes you can blend from frozen. Adjust the quantities until you get the consistency you prefer.
