I love Irish Coffee.  Especially in the winter when it is colder than Alaska. In honor of St. Paddy’s day, I am going to share a few of my favorite recipes for this yummy drink.

I have made the recipes for all of you who have never made Irish Coffee before and need some specific measurements. The rest of you can eyeball it, like I do, and still have a great coffee drink. There are lots of substitutions and ideas you can incorporate in this drink. So, make a pot o’ coffee and enjoy!

An Irish toast:

May neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and heaven accept you!

Irish Coffee

1 cup of strong, black coffee

1 sugar cube

1 shot of Irish whiskey

Whipped cream

Place a sugar cube in a coffee cup.  Add 1 shot of Irish whiskey then pour freshly brewed coffee into the cup. Stir and put a dollop of whipped cream on top. How easy was that!

Gravy Girl Irish Coffee

1 cup of strong, black coffee (I prefer an Italian Roast)

1 heaping teaspoon of brown sugar

1 shot of Irish whiskey (I prefer Jameson or Bushmills)

Top with a dollop of whipped cream (I prefer squirt whipped cream from the dairy case, it makes a great swirl on the coffee)

Irish Twins Irish Coffee

1 cup of strong, black coffee

1 sugar cube

1 shot of Irish Cream Liquor

1 shot of Irish Whiskey

Top with a dollop of whipped cream

A Lazy Irish Coffee

Just add a shot of Irish whiskey to a cup of coffee. No fancy stuff, just whiskey and coffee.

 Irish Virgin Coffee

1 cup of strong, black coffee

1 sugar cube

Top with a dollop of whipped cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar

Notes and Ideas: 

I like to garnish the coffee with a sprinkling of sifted cocoa, vanilla sugar, cinnamon sugar, or cinnamon on top of the whipped cream.

You can use any kind of whiskey or bourbon, but I think Irish whiskey is the best to use.

If you do not care for whiskey use just the Irish Cream Liquor.

During the holidays I make Holiday Coffee.  All it is is just coffee with squirt whipped cream swirled on top and then sprinkled with any of the garnishes mentioned. Ooh-la-la, the grandmothers love it!

 

 If you are lucky enough to be Irish…you are lucky enough!
