Canadian Coffee Recipe

* Canadian Coffee Recipe *

The maple syrup is a signature taste of something considered distinctly Canadian in origin.  I am not a big fan of alcoholic beverages, but the whiskey probably adds another kick if the caffeinated goodness isn’t enough.

Canadian Coffee


¼ c Maple syrup; pure

½ c Rye whiskey

3 c Coffee; hot, black, double strength


¾ c Whipping cream

4 ts Maple syrup; pure

How To:

Topping: Whip cream with maple syrup just up until soft mounds; set aside.


Divide maple syrup and whiskey among 4 warmed heatproof glass mugs or goblets. Pour in coffee to 1 inch of top; spoon topping over coffee.


One reader commented:

This was delicious though I have to say that I made one change.  First, I tried whipping cream and maple syrup together, and it didn’t turn out well.  So I made the coffee as directed in the recipe, topped it with canned whipped cream, and drizzled pure maple syrup (amber) on top. That looked much more appetizing than my first attempt.


And the numbers are in:
