In a mixing glass or pint glass with ice add the bourbon, syrup, triple sec, and coffee. Stir for 30 turns to incorporate. 

Strain the drink into an Irish Coffee glass or double old fashioned with ice. 

In a cocktail shaker add the cream and shake vigorously for 10 seconds or until the cream thickens. You want it just thick enough so it will float on top of the drink but not so thick that it turns into whipped cream. 

Top the drink with the thickened cream.
