Irish Coffee

A great holiday drink for any time. This staple of a drink has been around for ages, and although I may not be a huge coffee fan now, I do enjoy some Irish coffee. I have tried this by adding a half ounce of kalua and using Jameson cold brew whiskey instead of a standard Irish whiskey.
In honor of my Irish brother Willie Dines I leave you with this traditional toast:
Here’s to fooling, stealing, fighting, and drinking.
If you fool, may you fool death.
If you steal, may you steal a woman’s heart.
And if you fight, may you fight for a brother.
And if you drink, may you drink with me.


  • 2 oz. Irish whiskey
  • 5 oz. coffee
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • heavy cream


  • Pour the whiskey, coffee, and sugar into a stemmed, heated glass mug.
  • Stir, then top off with a thick layer of lightly whipped heavy cream. Don't stir it in.
