How to Make Irish Coffee: St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Irish coffee - commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:DenkhenkOriginally, Irish Coffee was a mixture of some whiskey, a bit of brown sugar, a good amount of strong black coffee, and whipped cream.

The first time I had Irish coffee was in San Francisco on vacation where dozens of people were crowded into a small bar, all waiting for their drink of Irish coffee.

I must say, it was very delicious and I have made it at home many times for guests & family alike.

How to Make Irish Coffee:

I like to serve Irish coffee in a large, clear, glass mug because it looks to appetizing and pretty, and these special mugs hold more volume than an ordinary mug.

I must say that I like mine with lots of whipped cream on top.
