Cocktails at Home: Proper Irish Coffee


On September 29th, celebrate National Coffee Day with a Proper Irish Coffee.


Proper No. Twelve paired with coffee ( our favorite is Fire Dept. Coffee (FDC), a veteran-owned business run by active and retired firefighters, also committed to giving back to first responders). With hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness, and toasted wood, Proper No Twelve perfectly complements the bold flavor of FDC’s Medium Roast. Once mixed with cream and sugar, it makes the most delicious Irish Coffee to toast National Coffee Day this year.





2 oz Proper No. Twelve Whiskey
4 oz hot coffee
.75 oz simple syrup
2-3 oz heavy cream


*In a shaker or jar, shake or whip heavy cream until slightly thickened (not completely stiff)
*In a mug, add Proper No. Twelve Whiskey, hot coffee, and simple syrup
*Carefully layer on top the thickened heavy cream until it covers the drink
*Optional- grate nutmeg on top


Proper No. Twelve has quickly become a standout brand – surging OVER 200% last year and also having the highest social media following of any wine, spirit or champagne brand.

This brand is proper in every way:

  • The liquid- Not your typical grain-only Irish whiskey – a blend of golden grain and single malt resulting in a smooth and approachable taste with hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness, and toasted wood.
  • Affordable quality- At $24.99 per bottle.
  • Proper No. Twelve gives back- For each case sold, $5 is donated to First Responder organizations worldwide, up to $1 million annually.
    • In March 2020, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation became the first $1 million donation recipient, info HERE.
    • In April 2020, Proper No. Twelve donated $100,000 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s COVID-19 Heroes Fund, supporting frontline healthcare workers + their families, AND created the ‘One For All’ T-shirt to raise additional funds and awareness. 100% of the price paid goes directly to the fund.
