  • 225 g caster sugar
  • 75 ml cold water
  • 60 ml hot water
  • 55–60 ml Irish whiskey


Put the caster sugar into a bowl with the water; stir over a gentle heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to the boil. Remove the spoon and do not stir. Continue to boil until it turns a nice chestnut-brown colour. Remove from the heat and immediately add the hot water. Allow to dissolve again and then add the Irish whiskey. Serve hot or cold.
