Whether it is St. Patrick's Day or you just need a little something extra with your coffee, a classic Irish Coffee should hit the spot between a bit of a buzz and delicious coffee. My recipe gives a bit of history and lots of options to please most palates even if you aren't a whiskey fan.
OPTIONAL: BROWN SUGAR
Add brown sugar, coffee, and whiskey. Top with whipped cream
Optional step: Add green food coloring or green creme de menthe for a splash of color.
Use some hot water to heat up your glass before making this recipe, that way your glass is piping hot.
If you hate black coffee, there is nothing stopping you from adding cream or Irish cream to the coffee.
Find whiskey you don't mind adding to this. Odds are if you like it in a whiskey sour or in another application, then you'll like it here.
