  1. In a pre-warmed stemmed heatproof glass (yes, you can also use a prewarmed coffee mug, but it doesn’t look as good), pour in whisky, then add sugar, then pour in coffee up to within 1/2-inch of rim.
  2. Stir well to dissolve sugar.
  3. Fill to the brim with whipped cream.
  4. Serve, enjoy, relax!
