Warm black coffee is poured into a pre-heated Irish coffee glass. Whiskey and at least one teaspoon of sugar is added and stirred until dissolved. Fresh thick chilled cream is carefully poured over the back of a spoon held just above the surface of the coffee. The layer of cream will float on the coffee without mixing. Plain sugar can be replaced with sugar syrup.
