Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Irish Coffee

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Are you wearing green?  Did you start your day with some Irish coffee?  If not, there’s still time!  Or perhaps you have a little after dinner cuppa.  It’s very easy and can be made however you like.  Because no 2 people take their coffee the same way, even the Irish.

Truthfully, I’m not quite sure how one would function after drinking a cup of this, but if you are relaxing or spending you day drinking green beer, this is certainly a good start.  The only ingredient that you need to make this coffee Irish is a shot of Irish whiskey.  After that, add what you like.  Now, Irish whiskey is some tough stuff.  So I had to soften the harshness with some Bailey’s Irish cream and some whipped cream.

Irish whiskey and Bailey's Irish Cream

Here’s how you make it.  Pour in your shot of Irish whiskey and then fill the mug with coffee to the desired level.  The Bailey’s Irish cream is pretty sweet so this will sweeten up your coffee.  Slowly pour it into the coffee mug.  It will sink to the bottom and give the coffee that nice, striped look.  Then top with some whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg.

That’s all it takes!  I highly recommend not attempting to do any work after consuming this beverage!  But definitely relax and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!

  • i started my day with a cup of green tea… which is neither green, nor irish. oops. i have a lot of work to do today so this irish coffee won’t be happening, but it sounds delicious and i love that generous layer of whipped cream!

    • Well, that green tea is much healthier than what I’m proposing so I’d stick with it! Hope you had a fantastic St. Patty’s Day!
