    Irish Coffee

    Posted by  ·  March 16, 2011

    I love coffee! If I am going to have a fancy coffee drink I am easily satisfied with black coffee spiked with  Irish Cream Liqueur, so simple and delicious.

    In honor of St. Patrick’s Day here is a traditional Irish Coffee recipe.

    Irish Coffee Recipe

    1 1/2 Cups Coffee

    1 to 2 teaspoons brown sugar

    2 Tablespoons Irish Whiskey

    1/4 cup heavy cream (beaten until lightly thickened)

    Pour hot coffee in a mug, add the brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Stir in Irish whiskey. Top with the thickened heavy cream by pouring cream gently over the back of a spoon to help the cream float rather than sink into the coffee mixture.
