Lift a glass of this Irish Drink Recipe and toast a loved one, a friend, an acquaintance or colleague, or even a stranger!

This drink recipe and the recipe for Irish Coffee are the two most popular Irish drinks I serve at the restaurant just before and on Saint Patrick's Day.

I think America has taken to celebrating St. Pat's Day not only because we have many citizens of Irish descent but also because it has an inviting and optimistic spirit about it; the Irish spirit of celebration, perseverance and optimism for the future.

So lift your Hot Double Irish Drink and offer an Irish toast:
    May your glass be ever full.
    May the roof over your head be always strong.
    And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

That's an Irish toast and I hear it in the restaurant during Saint Patrick Day celebrations.

For this recipe you should warm the whiskey. Pour the coffee in a cup, then use a spoon turned upside down and pour the warmed Irish whiskey over it so it flows down gently. Then, using the upside down spoon, add the Irish Cream (Bailey's is the best.)

Top it all with the whipped cream if you wish.
