Coffee Cream (Reinvented)

This one is oh so simple to make, and you will be glad you made the effort as it tastes better than any shop bought liqueur of a similar name (we all know which one).

So simple, but so good.

How to make it

  1. 1. Brew your coffee and leave it to cool in the fridge for 2 hours (I’m going to assume at this point you know how to make good coffee, but if not, check out our brew tips here)
  2. 2. Add the hot water to the icing sugar and stir to a paste
  3. 3. Add the whisky and cold coffee
  4. 4. Top up with the double cream
  5. 5. Give it a shake or a decent stir (depending on what vessel you’re using to prepare) with some ice to chill
  6. 6. Pour through a sieve and straight into your glass
  7. 7. Share your #unioncocktails

What you'll need

  • 40ml of brewed coffee (any will do…as long as it’s Union!)
  • 25g of icing sugar
  • 5ml of hot water (just off the boil)
  • 25ml of Whisky (any will do, but best to stick to a blend. You can usually find a relative who’s received a bottle as a Christmas gift).
  • 20ml of double cream
  • Ice
  • A shaker or something to prepare the drink
  • A strainer/sieve
  • A glass for serving (a tumbler works well)
