- Gaelic Coffee and Café au Drambuie

Here are some good ways to round off a meal - whether it has been a Scottish one or not. The only difference between Gaelic Coffee and Café au Drambuie (or Irish coffee for that matter) is in the type of alcohol used for flavouring.

3 dessertspoons Drambuie liqueur/whisky
1 level dessertspoon light brown sugar
Fresh, strong coffee
Double cream

Heat a stemmed wine glass with hot water and dry quickly. Add the Drambuie/whisky and stir in the sugar. Pour in the coffee, leaving an inch below the rim. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved and pour in the cream over the back of a teaspoon so that it floats on the surface to the depth of about half an inch.
