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.
