Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Beat egg white in a bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form; mix in lemon juice, stevia powder, and lemon zest.

  • Spoon ground coffee into a French press; add boiling water and cover. Let steep for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Combine Scotch and honey in a glass; pour in coffee and mix well. Top coffee with lemon-flavored egg white.

Cook's Notes:

If you're not a fan of eggnog flavor, you can use 3 tablespoons heavy cream instead of the egg white. Or you can combine the two: Whip them separately and then fold egg white into the cream.

To make it more of an Irish coffee, simply use Irish whisky! Bushmills(R) Original will work just fine here! I used a simple Scotch single malt for this one, hence it's "Celtic" not purely Irish coffee.

Editor's Note:

This recipe contains raw egg. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and the infirm do not consume raw egg. Learn more about egg safety from our article, Making Your Eggs Safe.

I wimped out on the raw egg and used whipped cream instead. Made this for my husband and he really liked it. He did say that he would have preferred it with less honey. Word of advice, get your zest prior to slicing it up for the juice you need. I forgot to do so and my zest was more in clumps than evenly distributed over the cream as it should have been. This drink would be excellent if you had a cold. Read More
