How to make:

1. Select a heat-proof glass and pre-warm by filling with very hot water and leave to stand.
2. Separately prepare cream by lightly warming and whipping or shaking (we recommend using a Aeroccino by Nespresso to whip your cream).
3. Empty the now warmed glass.
4. POUR whiskey, sugar syrup and hot coffee into warmed glass and briefly stir.
5. FLOAT heated and aerated cream over the back of a warmed spoon.
