Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 100ml Irish whiskey
  • 2 tsp Co-op Fairtrade dark brown soft sugar
  • 400ml hot black Fairtrade coffee
  • 100ml Co-op double cream


  1. Divide the whiskey and sugar between 2 heatproof glasses. Divide 400ml hot black Fairtrade coffee between the two, then stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Lightly whip the double cream until just thickened. Rest a warm spoon upside down on the surface of one drink, then carefully pour half the cream over the spoon (so it floats on the coffee) before repeating for the other glass. Serve immediately.
