So whether you're looking to unwind after a delicious St. Paddy's meal or needing to take the edge off, make this Irish coffee this St. Patrick's day or any day you need a little change up from your traditional coffee.
1 Cup of your favorite coffee
1-2 Tbsp brown sugar, depending on your sweetness preference
1 Oz Irish whiskey
2 Tbsp cream or half and half
2-3 Tbsp fresh whipped cream
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Brew your favorite coffee. Add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add whiskey and stir to incorporate. Holding a spoon over the coffee, rounded side up, slowly pour the cream or half and half allowing the cream to float throughout the coffee, do not stir. Top with fresh whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Do not stir the cream or whipped cream into the coffee, drink the coffee through the whipped cream.
* To make this a mock Irish coffee, omit the cream and whiskey and use your favorite flavor of Bailey's creamer.
