Whiskey Sugar

Have you ever tried an Irish Coffee? This year I’m enjoying one with whiskey sugar added! It’s a great treat to serve in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Make the perfect Irish Coffee with the help of our homemade whisky infused sugar recipe! We created this sugar with the tastiest whiskey we love. It lends a perfect touch to an otherwise mundane cup of coffee.

The sugar makes an Irish Coffee a cinch to pull together. And with a pretty bow a rock of this whiskey sugar becomes a great gift to celebrate the holiday or a hostess gift any time of year.

Whiskey Sugar

To make the whiskey sugar you will need:

  • 2 cups sugar in a bowl
  • 1/2 cup Bourbon Whisky
  • Whisk & baking dish


1. Start by combining the whiskey and sugar in a bowl and whisk together until combines. The sugra should get a bit hard like the difference between dry sand and mud.

2. Spread the wet sugar mixture onto a baking dish and let dry overnight (mine took about 36 hours).

Break off into pieces and add to coffee to make an easy Irish Coffee. Add a little 1/2 and 1/2 then top with whip cream if you’d like. Enjoy!

PS. You could also use the whiskey sugar to top these rainbow waffles for an awesome St. Patrick’s Day morning!
