How To Make Iced Gaelic Coffee:

Here are some tips for making the perfect iced Gaelic coffee:

Firstly, Use The Best Ingredients. Use freshly made coffee, fine Irish whisky, and fresh cream as your main foundations.

Secondly, Chill The Coffee. Before preparing the cocktail, chill the coffee, whisky, and cream in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Add sugar or simple syrup to the coffee before chilling if you want to sweeten it.

Thirdly, Give It A Little Shake. Coffee and whisky are combined. In a shaker or pitcher with ice, combine the iced coffee and whisky.

Fourthly, Ready To Serve. Pour the coffee and whisky mixture over the ice in a tall tumbler filled with ice. Pour some fresh cream on top of the coffee and whisky mixture to finish it off. If preferred, garnish the coffee with a dash of cocoa powder or cinnamon. Serve the iced coffee and take a sip
