Start with a heat proof cup and some really good dark brewed coffee. *It is recommended that you add hot water to your cup to warm it prior to mixing your cocktail.
Slightly warm and then aerate your heavy cream by stirring rapidly with a whisk or fork, or whip heavy cream to a whipped cream consistency. Set aside.
Remove hot water from your glass. Begin with your brown sugar, add hot coffee and stir.
Add the Irish Whiskey and stir.
Pour aerated heavy whipping cream over the back of a spoon and into your coffee mug, or dollop whipped cream onto the top of your Irish whiskey cocktail. Do not use the aerated cans of commercial whipped cream, as they can ruin your coffee drink.
Top with optional garnish of nutmeg, shaved chocolate, or 2 - 3 coffee beans if desired.
