1 teaspoon Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Turbinado Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons organic instant coffee granules
1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
7-8 ounces boiling water
2 tablespoons organic heavy cream
Sprinkles of coffee for top

Place a spoon in the bottom of a 10-ounce glass mug, then rinse mug with boiling water.  First place the sugar, then the coffee crystals, then the whiskey in the mug and stir vigorously.  Pour water to within an inch or two of mug top.  Swirl the mixture with a spoon, creating a mild whirlpool effect on top.  Invert the spoon, place it over the center of the mug and slowly pour the cream over the back of the spoon and into the whirlpool.  Once the cream "head" has formed, top with sprinkles of ground coffee.
