Irish Coffee Sundae

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 4 Sundaes
  1. 1 Pint vanilla ice cream
  2. 4 Ounces Irish whiskey
  4. 1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
  5. 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 1 Tablespoon sugar
  7. 1 Tablespoon Irish whiskey
  8. 8 Drops green food coloring (optional)
  10. 1 1/2 Cups strong coffee
  11. 3/4 Cups sugar
  12. 1 Teaspoon corn starch
  13. Fresh mint for garnish
  1. For coffee syrup, brew a batch of very strong coffee. Then measure out 1 1/2 cups of coffee and add to a small pot. Whisk together sugar and corn starch and then add to the coffee.
  2. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. Simmer over medium-low heat until the mixture reduces by half and forms a thin syrup.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool. As the syrup cools it will thicken even more.
  4. For whipped cream, stir together ingredients and then beat with a whisk or a hand mixer until cream holds stiff peaks. Store in the fridge until needed.
  5. For sundae, measure out 1 ounce of whiskey per glass. Top with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream (about 1/2 cup). Drizzle sundae with coffee syrup and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with fresh mint and serve immediately!
