Irish Coffee – Keto and Sugar Free | Alcohol on a Keto Diet | Keto Recipes

July 28, 2019 4 By William Morgan


welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com,
I really love my morning coffee and as I
mentioned in my traditional Scottish
shortbread cookie recipe video
I have acquired a taste for really good
whiskey, but only as a special occasion treat
for this recipe I have chosen this
very tasty Irish whiskey called the Saxton
I will talk more about this
whiskey, and drinking alcohol in general
on a keto diet, at the end of this video
and in a blog post article, and near the
end of the video I will have a special
guest do a taste test of this cocktail
so I hope you’ll watch this full video
and join me in a st. Patrick’s Day toast
because this video is also the
celebration of my 100th youtube video post
so with these two great ingredients,
coffee and Irish whiskey, today I’m going
to treat all of us to a demonstration of
how to make an authentic Irish coffee
keto and sugar-free, and this recipe has
an amazing keto ratio as I mentioned yes
you can have some types of alcohol on a
keto diet, in fact for this cocktail the
macronutrient ratio is 13.4 to 1, there’s no fiber in this recipe
so the total, and net carbs are
both 0.7 grams per serving
now to show you how to make a
traditional Irish coffee, to make this
cocktail as traditional as possible and
how mr. Joe Sheridan who created this version
which is now considered the
classic version, but variations of this
recipe had been served in Ireland for a
hundred years prior to mr. Sheridan
introducing it to the American tourists,
this recipe should be made in a glass
mug preferably with some sort of stem,
the first step is to boil some water and
pour it right up to the rim of the glass
mug, this will keep the coffee warmer
after your glass is very warm to the
touch
pour out and discard the water, the first
ingredient I’m using is two tablespoons
of Lacanto gold monk fruit sweetener,
I’m using the sweetener because it
tastes like and is a great substitute
for brown sugar
the next ingredient to be added is a
really good strong and hot freshly
brewed black cup of coffee, how much
coffee you will need to add will depend
on how much volume your glass Mug can hold
your coffee will add no carbs to
this recipe, so adjust accordingly
now stir very well, you want the sweetener
granules to completely dissolve
now I’m adding the star of the cocktail, and
please use a real Irish whiskey if you can
after you’ve added your whiskey stir
very well to combine, another really good
Irish whiskey is the Jameson 10 year old,
as you know whiskey can differ from one
distillery to another, and from one
country to another each having their own
unique taste,
so for an authentic Irish coffee use
authentic Irish whiskey, next I took my
heavy whipping cream or double cream
and very lightly whipped it to a creamy and
just slightly frothy, stage I put the
cream in my little cream jug, the spout
will make it much easier to pour the
cream over the coffee, so to add the
frothy cream in a way that it will form
a clean distinct layer, I used an
inverted spoon, and placed it close to
the coffee surface and close to the side
of the glass, then I began to slowly pour
the cream on the back of the inverted
spoon, pour enough cream so that you fill
it right up to the top of the mug, it’s
important the coffee and cream layer do not blend
and voila, that’s all that
there is to making this recipe
to correctly drink this, do not stir the
cream into the coffee, the correct way to
drink this is to let the whiskey infuse
sweet hot coffee go through the cool
whipped cream as you drink, now a few
words about alcohol and keto
alcoholic drinks such as this whiskey have zero
carbs and zero fibre, alcohol in general
and this whiskey, have seven calories per
gram of alcohol, if you’re interested for
more information visit my blog article
on drinking alcohol on a low carb or keto diet
as promised here’s my special
guest my son Alexander who has bravely
volunteered to have his very first ever
Irish coffee
slangevar, which means to your health
in Gaelic, I hope I didn’t massacre that too badly
If I did I apologize to all my
Irish friends and listeners, and now I
would like to propose a toast with this
Irish proverb may the leprechauns be
near you to spread luck along your way,
and make all the Irish angels
smile upon you on St. Patrick’s Day,
