Ingredients

Serves 1

  • 1 TSP of Coffee
  • 3 TSPs of Sugar (i used brown)
  • 50ml of Double cream
  • 25ml of Whisky optional (i used Honey JD)
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon and Chocolate
  • Boiling water

Add the coffee granules, sugar and whisky into the cup, fill with boiling water till there is just over an inch left below the rim. Stir until the coffee and sugar has completely dissolved. Stop the current of the liquid by dipping and holding the spoon in the coffee. Once the coffee is still, take a cold spoon and place it at a 45Β° angle so the that tip of the spoon is just touching the top of the coffee. Slowly pour the double cream over the back of the spoon. Keep pouring until the cream has filled to the top. Finish with sprinkling cinnamon and chocolate. Delicious served with shortbread.

Tip: You must put the amount or more of sugar in the coffee, otherwise the cream will not float.
