    Gaelic coffee requires the best cream available. Try Trickling Springs, available at the Stinky Bklyn cheese shop in Brooklyn. But any good cream (and Irish whiskey) will do, as long as you use high-quality, freshly brewed coffee and very cold whipped cream. Making the sugar syrup takes a few more minutes, but pays off in a subtle sweetness.

    The standard i see here in the bourgondish restos is that there should be a clear separation of the whisky, coffee and cream layers.

    Okay boys - it's called 'Irish Coffee'! saying Gaelic would encompass a lot (okay, a few) other places apart from Ireland.
    Definitely try it what with St, Patrick's day coming up - and whilst I'm still ranting it is NEVER EVER called St. Patty's day! Saying that automatically makes Irish people face-palm icon_smile.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidHym, so looks like we have all the four basic food groups here:

    1) Copious amounts of sugar

    2) Copious amounts of fat

    3) Caffeine

    4) Booze

    Where do I sign up?
    Relax! Looking at the delicious photo of Gaelic Coffee consumes zero calorie.

    Am glad to hear that side of you. I have a thin person inside of me too who wants to eat everything in sight!
