Happy Weekend Friends! 🤗

In celebration of ☘️ St. Patrick's Day, I've been indulging in this warming, caffeinated cocktail all week long... Irish coffee!


Until just recently, I haven't revisited coffee cocktails since my college days (and that was many, many moons ago). I'm thrilled to have rediscovered this boozy treat and will share the recipe with you here today!

It's easy-to-make and doesn't require many ingredients. I must say, it is worth the extra little bit of effort to whip up some homemade whipped cream for this drink. The cream makes this coffee cocktail. Trust me, you won't regret it!


Irish Coffee Cocktail Recipe ☘️☕


6 fl oz freshly brewed hot coffee
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 fl oz Irish whiskey
dash of Angostura bitters
1/4 cup (4 tbsps) whipped cream

Yield: 1 serving


Fill a glass coffee mug 3/4 full with freshly brewed hot coffee. Add a teaspoon of brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Next, pour 1 fl oz of Irish whiskey into glass followed by a dash of Angostura bitters. Top with whipped cream and grated cinnamon.

💡 Tipsy Tip: To "float" the whipped cream, use the back of a hot spoon.


Now you're ready to sip and enjoy!😋

The whiskey slows down (and slurs) any sugar rush... haha!

Tus post sobre bebidas me dan vida, y aunque no me encanta el café esto se ve divino.
No preguntes por qué pero conozco gente que al café le colocan un toque de jengibre

Your post about drinks gives me life, and although I do not love coffee this looks divine.
Do not ask why but I know people who put a touch of ginger to the coffee

Very nice pictures Michelle, the funny thing is that I do not drink but everyone else can enjoy it for me. Great day.
