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.
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.
Preparation time: 5 minutes. Serves 1.
Enjoy your Irish Drink and the company of those you share it with!
